Cuyahoga County Jail Master Plan and Diversion Analysis, Cleveland, OH

P/BA was selected as part of a multi-disciplinary team led by DLR Architects and is leading the development of the jail master planning effort which is a component of a comprehensive justice system master plan addressing the long range needs for the Courts, Sherriff’s Office and detention. The existing jail is severely overcrowded and under a court order to improve conditions of confinement. A key goal of the study is to examine new diversionary opportunities for offenders, especially for persons with serious mental illness and co-occurring disorders who are presently booked into the jail following an arrest. The master plan scope includes developing an operational and architectural program as well as projected staffing and operating costs for the future jail system.
In addition, the Cuyahoga County Diversion Committee and Master Plan Team requested that P/BA develop an interim operational and treatment program for a new diversion facility to serve as a mechanism to divert individuals who have serious mental illnesses from entering the Jail system.
