The Will County Adult Detention Facility provides for the safe and humane detention of individuals awaiting trial, or serving criminal sentences up to one year. The Will County Adult Facility has received accreditation status through the American Correctional Association, and the National Commission on Accreditation for Corrections. The Will County Adult Detention facility originally opened its doors in March of 1989, and in May of 2009, completed a $70 million dollar expansion of the facility. The original 156,000 square foot building was expanded to 318,000 square feet, adding 10 new housing units and increasing capacity of the jail from 322 inmates to over 1000 inmates. The facility is located in the downtown area of the Will County seat, which is Joliet Illinois. The facility is constructed in an architectural style called “podular”. The podular architecture clusters inmate cells around a common day room, exercise area, and visitation room.
