|Description:||This 51,110 sf dorm-style annex to the Pueblo County Jail is for non-violent inmates only. The new facility included an 11,575 sf kitchen that serves both the old and new jail facilities. The dormitory consisted of 39,535 sf. The inmate accomodations were made up of four pods of 80 beds each, along with tables and chairs, clothes washer and dryer, and a snack area with a sink and microwave.|
Each pod has its own recreation area with a basketball hoop and ping-pong table, board games, and chin-up bars and a conference room where inmates can meet with attorneys, take classes or attend religious services.
The building has its own master control booth where officers can monitor security cameras, open doors, and keep an eye on interior and exterior of the facility. The exterior work included a parking lot with landscape islands and a decorative wrought-iron fence on the east and west sides of the building.
