Two BOA Close The Workhouse Meetings This Week

CloseWorkhouse3St. Louis City operates two jails: City Justice Center Downtown and Medium Security Institution (City Workhouse). Close the Workhouse is a campaign to shutter the facility with the greatest problems because two jails are no longer needed. As the data shows, there is tremendous excess capacity operating two jails. Maintenance of two jails is only required if the City contracts to house Federal prisoners or gets in the immigration detention business.

February 17, 2020 Inmate Data
City Justice Center:  860 Capacity, 635 Confined
City Workhouse: 1138 Capacity, 241 Confined
Total Number Confined: 876
Number of City/State Inmates that City is obligated to house: 631
Number of optional Federal Inmates housed by contract: 245
Excess Capacity- if City did not house Federal Inmates, and all City/State Inmates were confined at Justice Center, and Workhouse closed: 139

Make your voice heard. Tell your Alderperson and Board President Lewis Reed to Close the Workhouse. Contact info at end of post.
