The Lower Buckeye Jail was opened in April 2005 and is the largest detention facility in Arizona.
Its design is based on Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “no frills” philosophy. The Facility currently houses all
classifications of inmates, and includes separate housing for juvenile inmates (who are remanded
on adult charges) and various types of special management inmates.

The housing units were designed to minimize inmate movement by providing needs (such as
medical, education, visitation, religious services and various rehabilitation programs) within the
inmate’s assigned housing unit, thus practically eliminating routine inmate movement. Along
with safety and security, employee needs were also a priority in the design. Conference and
training rooms were added to provide quality training. Break-room areas and an exercise facility
with male and female locker rooms are available for employee use. Many innovative tools were
designed and utilized to make operations more streamlined and to increase security. A few of
these tools include Video Visitation, Nice Vision Recording, Touch Screen Controls, and the Iris
