The Los Angeles Twin Towers Correctional Facility is a maximum security facility, located at 450 Bauchet Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Built in 1997 in the wake of the Northridge earthquake, which damaged the Hall of Justice (located at 210 West Temple street), the facility is -by ground coverage- the largest jail in the world, with a maximum capacity of 9,500 prisoners, and covering 1.5 million square feet of ground. There are two main buildings on site: the Medical Services building, where facilities are provided to adequately provide care for inmates suffering from acute medical and mental health problems, and the Medical Center, which houses inmates that require severe health care services. The facility is operated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department, and houses both maximum security inmates and mental health inmates.
