St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility

St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility

This 186-bed facility replaced the existing 85-bed jail, eliminating the county’s need to board out inmates.

The facility’s direct-supervision design enabled the county to maintain the original jail’s lower staffing levels. SMRT developed a cost-effective, flexible unit design to 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.
