— 100 FACILITY INFORMATION
  • The Twin Towers Correctional Facility also referred to in the media as Twin Towers Jail, is a complex in Los Santos, San Andreas. The facility is located on Sustancia Road in Los Santos and is operated by the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department.

    The jail consists of two General Population (GP) Units housing up to maximum security inmates and one Secure Housing Unit (SHU) used to hold offenders with serious behavioral or management concerns. Each unit is capable of operating independently of each other, with GP units having independent dining rooms, clothing distribution rooms, libraries, chapels, indoor gyms and jail industry workshops. The facility also has a healthcare services building.
— 101 CONTACTING AN INMATE
  • — Written Contact
    Inmates serving their sentence at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility may be sent letters and care packages. Care packages can only be received from pre-approved addresses and contacts. Inmates may also send mail to pre-approved addresses. Inbound and outbound mail is thoroughly inspected by jail staff before delivery. Any attempt to smuggle contraband inside or outside of the institution through the mail may be met with criminal prosecution.

    To ensure that mail indeed reaches its intended recipient, please indicate the recipient address as follows:
    • Inmate Full Name

      Los Santos, SA 212
    (( You will need to send this letter to "honey." on GTA:W Forums or Isabella Ramirez on LSSD Forums, within this message please note down the relevant Forum name of the recipient. If the letter does get approved, it'll be sent by the aforementioned person to the recipient. ))

    — Phone Contact
    Inmates assigned to General Population Units may use Twin Towers-provided phone services when not engaged in other activities to contact numbers pre-approved from jail staff. Inmates in a Secure Housing Unit placement may not make phone calls, exception made for emergency situations.

    The usage of facility phones is a privilege which can be revoked at the discretion of Deputies, such as for a violation of jail rules. All phone calls are recorded and may be monitored or reviewed.
