The Broward Sheriff's Office's newest detention facility opened in February 2004. Modeled after BSO's Joseph V. Conte Facility in Pompano Beach, the $36.6 million complex is a direct supervision jail where staff works more closely with inmates and inmate movement is kept to a minimum.

Designed to handle 1,020 inmates in two four-story towers, the 257,790 square foot medium / maximum security jail houses male and female inmates in separate areas. More than 200 deputies supervise the inmates with support from nearly three-dozen non-sworn BSO administrative employees.

The BSO In-Custody Behavioral Services Division operates both a Substance Abuse Program and Life Skills Program for inmates at the Paul Rein Detention Facility. These programs promote pro-social attitudes and behavior change in an effort to reduce criminal behavior. Additionally, the Chaplain's Office operates a Lifestyles Spiritual Unit.

Because of direct supervision, higher security risk inmates don't have to leave their housing unit for visitation. A non-breakable window separates the housing unit from a visitation area and inmates and visitors can talk on a built-in telephone.

The medical facilities include an on-site OB-GYN clinic to address the needs of pregnant inmates.

The Paul Rein Detention Facility, like all the BSO jails, provides inmates with nearly two-dozen different specialty diets including Kosher, vegetarian, high-calorie and low-calorie, prepared daily to meet the needs of the prisoners.
