St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility
This 186-bed facility replaced the existing 85-bed jail, eliminating the county’s need to board out inmates.
Its direct-supervision design also enabled the County to maintain the original jail’s lower staffing levels. SMRT developed a flexible unit design to cost-effectively accommodate a range of inmate classifications with small populations.
The facility meets strict Wicks Law mandates and American Correctional Association (ACA) standards.
Building performance exceeds New York State NYSERDA certification standards, yielding a substantial energy incentive payment for the County.
