The Bartlett State Jail was a privately operated minimum- and medium-security prison for men located in Bartlett, Williamson County, Texas.[1] The facility was operated by Corrections Corporation of America under contract with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and housed state inmates.[2]

CCA ran the facility from 1995 to 2017. It had an official capacity of 1049 inmates.

A sexual assault lawsuit filed against CCA for a "hazing" incident in October 2013 alleged, among other things, that the facility was deliberately understaffed to cut costs.[3]

The facility was closed in 2017 due to declining inmate populations in the state of Texas.[4]
