Situated in Otay Mesa, the George Bailey Detention Facility (GBDF) stands as the largest maximum-security facility within the San Diego County Sheriff’s jurisdiction. Completed in 1991, the facility commenced limited operations in 1993 and achieved full operational status in 1994.
The facility’s architecture encompasses six housing units, a medical area, a processing zone for incarcerated individuals, and an administrative section. Within the administrative area, one finds the Detentions Processing Unit, Operational Support Unit, and the Facility Command staff.
The dedicated staff at GBDF includes both sworn and professional personnel, serving in operational and support capacities. This team spans Food Services, Religious Services, Medical Services, Counseling Services, Laundry and Supply Services, Administrative Support Services, Detention Processing Services, and Maintenance Support.
GBDF accommodates a diverse incarcerated population, some with specific housing requirements. Currently, the facility houses three units designed for distinct special management needs among incarcerated individuals.
