The Maximum Security Correctional Facility is at the Bossier Sheriff Complex, north of Benton, La. This facility opened September 1, 2005 to replace the intake/jail formerly located on the fifth floor of the Bossier Parish Courthouse.
This facility is a state-of-the-art correctional facility. Representatives from the Bossier Sheriff's Office met with national experts in the design phase of the facility, and those ideas were transformed into one of the most up-to-date correctional facilities in the country.
The level of control of the inmates is something that has never been seen before in Bossier Parish. The facility is equipped with 288 cells, some single and some double occupancy, according to classification of the inmates.
A complete medical section meets medical needs of inmates not only in this facility, but in other facilities operated by the Sheriff's Office. New technology has been installed to provide video arraignment, to reduce transportation of inmates to court. Also, video visitation reduces movement of inmates throughout the facility .
This facility completes the infrastructure that makes the criminal justice system in Bossier Parish second to none. The warden of the facility can be reached at 318-326-4405.
