New Mexico Detention Center

This male 624 Bed Detention Facility also house the County Detention facility for Union County. The facility includes 2 Housing Units/Pods, a Maintenance Building, required Support Facilities, Recreational Activities, and Administration Building. Currently there are no existing facilities on the 70 acre site just outside Clayton, New Mexico. Due in part to the isolation of the site, the buildings were constructed from precast with prefabricated cells brought in by train to the site and erected. This eliminated much of the time consuming labor.
