The Central Intake Bureau (CIB) operates with approximately 255 sworn and civilian staff. They process an estimated 40,000 arrests annually from all Broward County law enforcement agencies. Arrests are processed at one remote booking site located in the City of Pompano Beach and the main booking facility which is housed within BSO's Main Jail Bureau in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

In addition to processing arrests, the CIB is responsible for pre-magistrate holding, court activities, confinement status, releasing, hospital details, and transportation of inmates. Further, the CIB is the transfer and pickup location for inter-facility transfers, custody transfers and custody releases to the state prison system, U.S. Marshalls, other governmental agencies and court-ordered programs.

Opened in May 1999, the Joseph V. Conte Facility is a male, medium-custody facility housing mainly inmates awaiting trial. Conte is a direct supervision facility, meaning deputies are stationed inside the housing units and interact directly with inmates. Meals, recreation, counseling, treatment programs and medical care are provided within the housing units, eliminating the need to escort inmates to other areas to receive them. The Conte Facility is program intensive and includes 30-day substance abuse programs, as well as various educational programs.

Built at a cost of $25.5 million, the facility houses 1,328 inmates and is staffed by 231 law t and civilian personnel.

The facility is named for Joseph Conte, a 47-year-old BSO detention deputy, killed in the line of duty in July 1979.

The Main Jail is an eight-story maximum security facility adjacent to the Broward County Courthouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Built in 1985 at a cost of $41.6 million, it was originally designed to house 864 local and state inmates. In 1988 and again in 1992, capacity was expanded to 1,538 inmates. More than 400 sworn and civilian staff supervises the facility which also includes Central Intake Bureau (Booking) for all Broward County law enforcement agencies, pre-magistrate, Centralized Classification Intake assessment for all BSO detention facilities, an infirmary and administrative offices.

An all-male facility, most inmates are awaiting trial or sentencing, or are serving terms of less than one year. The inmates housed in the Main Jail are considered escape risks, violent or dangerous, or by the nature of their charges require maximum security housing. The Main Jail also includes an average of 65 juveniles awaiting trial in adult courts; they are housed separately from adult inmates.

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.
