The Colusa County Sheriff’s Department has been awarded the opportunity to provide adequate programming, mental health treatment, and recreation space.

On Thursday, November 12, 2015, the California Board of State and Community Corrections announced that the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office would receive a $20 million for a new jail facility.

The aptly named Colusa County Detention & Treatment Facility’, will be built on the existing property in Colusa, and will replace the current facility that was built in 1963.

According to the Request for Proposal (RFP) dated December of 2014, the new facility includes 84-beds, recreation space, four program rooms, and provide a medical and dental clinic/exam space. This will allow safety and respiratory isolation cells and expand work areas with support space for medical, mental health treatment, and jail staff.

The existing jail will be vacated by the Sheriff’s Office and has been proposed to be used as a secure storage facility for Colusa County records, furnishings, and equipment.

The new facility will be funded by Senate Bill (SB) 863 for the construction of adult local criminal justice facilities. This legislation provides up to $500 million in state lease-revenue bond financing authority for the acquisition, design, and construction of adult local criminal justice facilities in California. The project development will begin immediately with occupancy of the facility planned for summer 2019.
