The new Clay County Jail is a state-of-the-art facility that incorporates the newest technology and latest trends in justice design. The facility is located across from the historic limestone-clad courthouse.

In coordination with the owner and the Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC), this is one of the first jails in Indiana to locate inmate showers within the cells instead of in the day rooms. The design also embraces the IDOC’s philosophy of housing medium security classification inmates in four-man cells in lieu of two-man cells for improved economy. Examples of cutting edge features in the design include:

  • Video visitation arraignment

  • Telemed-style health care

  • Vacuum pneumatic waste plumbing system for the cells

  • Second-level control room with a full view into eight day rooms

  • 20 beds designated to the work release program
