The San Francisco County Jail system houses an
average daily population of 2,200 prisoners in six County Jails. The system
includes an intake and release facility, County Jail #1, and a ward in San
Francisco General Hospital, Ward 7D/7L. Approximately 55,000 people are booked
into the jails annually.

County Jail #2 was opened in December of 1994, next to the Hall of
Justice. This direct supervision facility has become a national model for
program-oriented prisoner rehabilitation. Some 400 inmates participate in
G.E.D., E.S.L. programs, alcohol and drug abuse counseling, and family
unification.

County Jail #1 includes the
new intake and booking facility. The building’s dramatic architectural design
was praised by Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Allan Temko, who
called it “a stunning victory for architectural freedom over bureaucratic
stupidity.”
