Detention Facility 8 is a medium security facility built in conjunction with the George F. Bailey Detention Facility (GBDF) in 1991.  It is a mirror image of the cell housing units found at GBDF.

From 1991 to 2006, the County of San Diego leased the unit and associated land to the Wackenhut Corporation and then to the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA).  On June 1, 2006, by contractual agreement, the original housing unit was returned to the County of San Diego.  Renovations to bring the facility up to standards immediately began.

Facility 8 contains three housing modules – two modules with 34 double occupancy cells, and one with 32 double occupancy cells – for a total of 200 beds. Although Facility 8 is designed as a maximum security jail, only low-medium security inmates classified between level I and III are housed.
