The Trumbull County Adult Justice Center is actually two Detention facilities in one: the Minimum Security Jail and the Full Service Jail/F.S.J.

The Minimum Security Jail or M.S.J. as it is called will house up to ninety-six non-violent, misdemeanant, first time offenders as well as non-violent F4 and F5 felons. This concept in Adult Detention Facilities is relatively new. It consists of a dormitory type environment that will support many of the "work release" inmates. The "Work Release" Program is another giant leap forward in allowing incarcerated individuals to continue support of their families, reduce fines and costs, and maintain an element of dignity while they pay their own way under a type of supervised honor system.

The Full Service Jail (F.S.J.), which is the "tower" section of the new facility, will house the same types of individuals that the old jail has housed since 1966.

The Trumbull County Adult Justice Center does not have the typical bars that you might associate with a "jail type" environment. Every cell has specially made security windows that will provide a minimum of forty lumens of light to each desk area.

The foresight of the Trumbull County Adult Justice Center planners has equiped each area, or (pod) of cells, with several specially designed cells to better meet the needs of handicapped individuals.

Each cell is designed to house only one inmate. This important fact will eliminate the possibility of coercion within the cell areas and provide a more secure environment for all officers, staff and other inamtes.

The trumbull County Adult Justice Center is equiped with the lastest computer technology. Inmates incarcerated in the new facility will be monitored in several ways. Computerized identification wrist bands with bar codes will be used to scan accurate inmate information for positive identification at all times. The bar codes on the wrist bands once scanned will not only provide instant inmate information but will confirm participation in any of the programs that will be adopted by the new Trumbull County Adult Justice Center.

There are over one hundred twenty nine video surveillance cameras strategically placed around the outside and throughout the inside of the facility. These will be used to constantly monitor the outside fenced in perimeter of the facility as well as monitor all inmate traffic when moving throughout the inside perimeter of the jail.

In addition to the newly established "Work Release" Program the Trumbull County Adult Justice Center will provide other State Certified Programs in an attempt to educate and rehabilitate inmate residents. It is with extreme hope and optimism that these programs will aid the community and cut down on recidivism. Some of the programs that will be implemented include, G.E.D. Classes, AA and NA Group Meetings, Church Services, Bible Study, and Mental Health.

The Trumbull County Adult Justice Center is a twenty-four hour facility that in addition to administration, administrative assistants and the warden, employs five assistant wardens and sixty-four well trained, state certified correction officers.

The design phase of the jail project started in January 1994:
