The Pima County Sheriff Department operates a “New Generation” Adult Detention Center, which includes 3 detention facilities: the Main Jail, minimum security Mission Facility and the Ajo District Jail. Juveniles are detained in the Pima County Juvenile Detention Center. These facilities provide detention services for law enforcement agencies in the metropolitan Tucson area and throughout Pima County. The facility incorporates contemporary concepts in jail design and the use of a direct supervision mode of inmate management. In a direct supervision jail, corrections staff control behavior of the jail population through a pro-active concept.

Unlike more traditional re-active containment – utilizing bars, security glass, and other barriers – officers are assigned to work inside each pod in physical proximity to the inmates. It is the philosophy of the Pima County Sheriff’s Department to maintain a detention facility that is not only humane and pro-active in its approach toward inmates but also be an employer that has pride in our most important resource, our employees.
