The perimeter of the prison is enclosed by two, 12-foot galvanized chain link fences topped with coiled stainless steel razor wire.  A third 12-foot galvanized chain link fence topped with coiled stainless steel razor wire provides a buffer between the prison property and perimeter road.  The entire boundary of the prison property is clearly marked with signage that gives notice of Prison Property, Do Not Enter and the entire perimeter contains an electronic detection and camera system which enhances public safety.
