Smaller, Smarter, Greener, Kinder: Detention Planning and Design for the 21st Century

AIA CES: 2.5 LUs | 2.5 HSW

When: 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2

Where: At The Center   

In cities and counties across the nation, the challenge of providing constitutional and cost-effective settings that address the unique blend of risk and need found in the adult pre-trial population continues. Objective Jail Classification allows local corrections officials to address inmate risk and need based on empirical information yet at the same time permits localities to customize their methodology to accommodate the unique features of their system. The new downtown 1500 bed City of Denver Detention Center organized the operational layout of their model jail, based on the premise of Objective Jail Classification. New advances in classification point the way to a more effective, cost-efficient and humane approach to pre-trial detention.
