Built with Increased Safety

Safe Jail is a partnership of public health, facility designers, engineers, and corrections experts focused on making jails safe.

“COVID is the just the latest challenge to public health in the corrections environment. SafeJail’s innovative designs can protect all communities and their jails from becoming hotspots.”

- Fred Wilson

COVID-19 has hit jails particularly hard.

Some jails have reported cases in more than half of inmates, and each new inmate has the potential of adding to the viral spread. Safe Jail was formed to help jails and corrections officials manage their isolation needs in the COVID crisis and keep their facilities safe for future outbreaks. 
We have pre-engineered designs for testing, screening and isolating inmates as they enter facilities. These designs meet the needs of jails of all sizes. The designs meet all ACA guidelines.
