Dallas County TX Suzanne Lee Kays Jail (South Tower)
This facility, also known as South Tower, is the department’s first direct supervision facility (meaning the detention officers work inside the actual housing unit with the inmates). The construction of this facility was completed in spring of 2008. Inmate capacity for this facility is 2,304. Sheriff Jim Bowles dedicated this detention center to the memory of Suzanne Lee Kays back in 1995. Deputy Kays was killed in the line of duty on January 4, 1989, just six days after graduating from the sheriff's academy.
