About the Brooklyn Detention Complex

The Brooklyn Detention Complex, located in the city of Brooklyn, in New York County, New York is a medium to maximum-security facility.

Every year this facility has 15180 Bookings, with a daily average of 759 Inmates and a staff of 189.

Inmates range from low level misdemeanor offenders to those being held and awaiting trial for violent crimes like robbery, rape and murder. Therefore, the security level must be high.

Correctional officers in Brooklyn Detention Complex are armed with mace and trained to use physical force to protect themselves, visitors and inmates from violence. 

All of the men and women being held in the Brooklyn Detention Complex are either awaiting trial or have been sentenced in the New York County Court System and been sentenced to one year or less. 

The Brooklyn Detention Complex also houses inmates arrested by this county’s municipal police departments. 

A full list of the cities and towns can be found below.

Family and Friends of inmates are allowed to:

•    Provide them with commissary money

•    Schedule a time to visit. 

Convicted and Sentenced Inmates

When an inmate is convicted and sentenced to a year or more, they are transferred to the New York State Prison System or the Federal Bureau of Prisons.  

Inmates that are convicted of a misdemeanor and/or sentenced to less than one year of a state crime serve their time in the jail. 

Illegal immigrants convicted of a state or federal crime will first do their time, then may be transferred into ICE custody for deportation.
