Between 1971 to about 1985, the New York City Jail only was composed of two cells that were sat right next to one another in the communications portion of the New York City Hall.

The patrol officers were responsible for processing and booking the inmates while the dispatchers would be the ones who oversaw supervising the inmates as the city jail had no real detention officers.

Then in 1986, the New York City Jail moved to the New York Municipal Center. This new jail would be composed of six single cells alongside three holding cells near the booking area. The patrol officers would then again oversee processing and booking inmates while the dispatchers would still oversee supervising the inmates.

The New York City Jail that you see today on (66 John Street, 13th Floor, New York, NY, 10038) was officially in use starting on August 2, 2004. This facility contains 64 jail cells within four different cell units. The facility also comes equipped with isolation cells, holding cells, and medical cells as well.
