The Glen Helen Rehabilitation Center lies on 9 acres of land and consists of three inmate-housing facilities. Glen Helen is San Bernardino County ‘s primary facility for housing both male and female inmates sentenced to County commitments.
The Male Facility opened in 1960 as a work camp and had a capacity of 100 inmates in a maximum housing unit. The original site was also used as the Sheriff’s Basic Academy until many years later when the training center was moved to the property just north of the jail. The current facility has two Minimum Security Housing Units and a Maximum Security Housing Unit. Glen Helen has a maximum capacity of 1024 inmates and averages a daily population of 1020.
Glen Helen‘s Female Facility originally opened in 1988 with three dorm units for the housing of county sentenced inmates. An additional Maximum Security Unit was added in 2003 and the complex now houses both pre-trial and sentenced females. The Female Facility has the capacity to house 326 inmates and averages an inmate population of 240 inmates per day.
