The Yuma County Detention Annex consists of 43,000 SF , 81 cells, prisoner tunnel and single master control room. The annex is a detention facility for juveniles convicted of adult offenses, a tunnel complex, and underground parking facility, a warehouse facility and administrative offices.
The two-story building with basement is fully enclosed with a vehicle maintenance shop and an impound lot. The underground complex connects the annex to the existing jail through a tunnel under 3rd Avenue. This allows the sheriff ’s office to move inmates between the jail, the annex and the Yuma County Justice Center securely and without any interaction with the general public.
Layton Construction completed the Yuma County Detention Annex one month early and under budget.
