Jail Design Review Handbook

In July 2003, the US Department of Justice, National Institute of Corrections, released the Jail Design Review Handbook.

The Jail Design Review Handbook assists sheriffs, jailers, county administrators, and other decision-makers in reviewing and critiquing jail design documents to make sure that their new facilities work for them and their communities, are safe and secure, and will fully support intended operations and inmate populations. To aid project team members with design reviews during planning to schematic design, the book provides checklists with suggested questions on virtually every space within a jail.
