Our Expertise

CGL provided design review, diversion assessment, and transition and activation services for the new $16.2-million, 200-bed jail in Oconee County, South Carolina. Our firm led a kick-off meeting that explained an overview of the transition and activation process, a four day training class, and monthly assistance to the transition team throughout jail construction. The on-site and monthly assistance aided the team in developing general operations, staffing, scenarios, policies and procedures, job descriptions, post orders, training, move logistics, and post occupancy evaluation.

In December 2013, CGL was contracted by the Sheriff’s office to assess inmate diversion and alternatives to incarceration programs that could reduce the number of inmates detained in the County. The inmate diversion and alternative to incarceration assessment was a component of the transition and activation program for the new Oconee County Law Enforcement Center.

"The design allowed for maximum usage for minimum square footage, and we were also able to minimize the number of additional staff needed to operate the facility. CGL's project managers are very experienced in jail design and construction. They offered project oversight we could never do on our own. They were angels on our shoulders, watching all aspects of design and construction."
