Jails, Prisons, and Detention Centers in Nevada

Jails, prisons, and detention centers are all types of correctional facilities, but they differ in terms of their purpose and function.

A jail is a short-term facility that is used to hold people who have been arrested and are awaiting trial or who have been sentenced to serve a short-term sentence. Jails are usually run by local governments (such as the Las Vegas Police Department).

A prison is a long-term facility that is used to house people who have been convicted of crimes and sentenced to serve a longer-term sentence. Prisons are usually run by state governments. In Nevada, this is the Nevada Department of Corrections.

A detention center is a general term for facilities that are used to hold people. Depending on the situation, they can mean jail or prison, for juveniles, or for immigrants who are awaiting deportation proceedings or who have been ordered to be deported.
