Body

WHEREAS, the Atlanta City Detention Center (the “ACDC”), located at 254 Peachtree Street, S.W. was built in 1995 and houses up to 1,300 inmates; and

WHEREAS, municipalities across the country have leased jail space to other governmental entities as a means to reduce overcrowding and restructure operations; and


WHEREAS, most recently Cuyahoga County, OH government assumed operations of the Cleveland City jail in 2017; and

 

WHEREAS, the City of Atlanta and Fulton County have a long history of collaboration with the Fulton County jail; and


WHEREAS, the City has assisted Fulton County to house inmates bound over trial; and

 

WHEREAS, leasing the ACDC to Fulton County would alleviate overcrowding at the Fulton County jail, and assist with the transport of inmates to the Fulton County courthouse; and

 

WHEREAS, the relationship between the City of Atlanta and Fulton County can be strengthened to address the various criminal justice issues our City faces; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Council hereby requests that the Mayor, or her Designee, commence negotiations with the Fulton County Sheriff and the Fulton County Commission for the lease of the Atlanta City Detention Center.
