The Tuolumne County Jail, also known as the Sheriff J.H. Jack Dambacher Detention Center, is officially complete. A socially distanced and invitation-only ceremonial ribbon-cutting was held back in October, to signal the completion located at the County’s Law and Justice Center Campus. At the ribbon-cutting, Sherrif Bill Pooley and the Board of Supervisors including Karl Rodefer commemorated the new building, providing information about the project’s history to those in attendance.

The project is a complete replacement facility to the original, antiquated jail. The new jail is a full-service facility and includes 228 beds in eight separate housing units allowing for male and female inmates and multiple classifications. Within the housing area lies 2,100 square feet dedicated to inmate programs. The facility also includes an intake and transportation suite, a large kitchen and laundry facility that supports both the new jail and adjacent juvenile hall. Additionally, the new jail has medical and mental health clinical spaces with exam and dental rooms, custody support staff areas, office and administration spaces as well a public lobby space.

Congratulations to the entire project team on the completion of this new building that will serve the County for years to come.
