Detroit Detention Center
Detroit Detention Center (DDC) is located at 17601 Mound Road Detroit, Michigan. The DDC makes use of the former Mound Correctional Facility which was closed in January 2012. The DDC was opened on August 1, 2013 and operates under an interagency agreement between the Detroit Police Department and the Michigan Department of Corrections. The DDC holds all pre-arraigned detainees 17 years of age or older in the City of Detroit for up to 72 hours. The detainees at the DDC are booked, and fingerprinted by MDOC employees and are arraigned by either the 36thDistrict Court or the 34th District Court.
The Detroit Detention Center currently uses two of the buildings located on the premises. Building 100 is used as the Administrative Building for DDC administrative staff and Building 500 is used for holding detainees. Building 100 is also used by the Detroit Police Department for initial arrestee intake, suspect interviews, line-ups, and other detective duties. Department policies that apply to prisoners do not apply to the detainees at the DDC. However, Department policies which govern personnel matters, custody and security measures, use of force, physical plant requirements, and other non-prisoner related matters apply unless specifically exempted by the CFA Deputy Director or designee.
