Construction was completed in 1989; this center was originally built to be a detention center. It functioned as a Probation Detention Center until May 2006 when it was converted to a Pre-Release Center housing both medium and minimum offenders with less than five years remaining on either their TPM or MRD. Macon SP is the host facility.
Four open dormitories with bunk beds, housing 48 offenders in three dorms and 50 in the fourth dorm. We also have isolation/segregation cells.
