More Information

Mohave County Jail was built between 1909 and 1910. The architects were from the Pauley Jail Company. The contractor was a man by the name of John Mulligan. The jail was actually something that was rebuilt over the old jail use a neoclassical approach. This architectural style started in the mid-18th century, so it was well-established by the time the new jail was built. The style is a merging of the old classical style as well as some more modern approaches.

The reason the jail was replaced in the first place was due to the fact that the old jail had flaws in it that allowed prisoners to escape continually. The Mojave County jail sought to correct this by creating metal floors with reinforced concrete walls in the modern style. This made it more difficult for prisoners to punch through the floors or walls like they did before due to the inferior materials the old jail used.

Arizona doesn't have many county jails left like the Mojave County Jail, so it is now unique in that way. The jail was added to the National Register of Historic Places a few years ago, showing its importance within the historical record of Arizona.

The jail was due to be renovated in the 2010s since it was in need of repairs. This is a fact that is further accentuated by the fact that it's a historical place of note now. That's why there's some struggle for how exactly it should be done

In general, the people who are accused of misdemeanor crimes in the area ended up at this jail during the times of its operation. In the 2010s there was some call for having the jail either renovated or even shut down entirely in order to make way for a different system for processing inmates given the age of the jail at that point, where it was well over one hundred years in age.

The jail is 242 thousand square feet in size. There are 688 beds in what is called a "pod style" configuration. When there is the need for extra people, the facility could expand to fit in a maximum of 1100 beds.

Hours of operations are 8 - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The public can call for inmate information or bond inmates out 24 hours a day - 7 days a week.
