New Hall County C.I. grand opening set for Feb. 12

Hall County Government will be holding a grand opening for the new Hall County Correctional Institution (C.I.) on Friday, Feb. 12 at 10 a.m.

The new facility replaces the old Hall County C.I., which is 53 years old.

"We are honored to be able to provide the citizens of Hall County with a more secure, efficient facility, which will meet the needs of our correctional system for years to come," said Hall County Warden Walt Davis.

The medium to minimum security prison will have the ability to house 200 inmates and includes a state-of-the-art fully automated Jail Management System. It has been outfitted with energy efficient lighting and lighting controls, as well as a separate dorm for participants in Hall County's Reentry Accountability Court Transition (REACT) program.

Construction on the new C.I. began in November 2014 and was built at a significant cost savings to Hall County taxpayers. Hall County Government served as contractor for the project, hiring necessary subcontractors and realizing substantial savings in the process. Those savings were also realized through the use of inmate construction crews from the Georgia Department of Corrections.

"The cost of building a new C.I. using conventional construction methods would be as much as $7 million," Davis said. "By utilizing this unique methodology, we were able to complete the new facility within a budget of $3.6 million."

In addition to providing a more efficient space for Hall County's REACT program, the new C.I. also serves as the home for a number of other inmate programs, including the Residential Substance Abuse Program (RSAT). RSAT is a 9-month-long intensive substance abuse program administered by New Hope Counseling and is the only program of its kind in the state of Georgia. Other programs include GED preparation classes and testing, Financial Peace University, Motivation for Change classes and Morale Reconation Therapy, which seeks to decrease recidivism by increasing morale reasoning.
