The Towers Jail was built in 1982, designed as a 360-cell facility with six tower units. There are four pods in each tower, and each pod contains housing areas with general-purpose day rooms, and bathroom/shower areas. The jail also contains a fully staffed and equipped medical clinic, a non-denominational chapel for religious services, and classrooms for educational, drug rehabilitation, and life-skills programs. Additionally, there are three outside areas for recreation.
The jail currently houses approximatlly 180 inmates who are either involved in the Alpha Drug Progra, The Chain Gang,or who are
not able to serve their sentences in the Tents Jail for some particular reason.
