The Richmond County - Charles B. Webster Detention Center (CBWDC) is a medium-security detention center located at 1941 Phinizy Rd Augusta, GA which is operated locally by the Richmond County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Richmond County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Augusta Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Charles B. Webster Detention Center is a 35,000 square foot Inmate Processing Center that houses inmates in a pod-style jail originally designed to alleviate the overcrowding at the now-closed Richmond County Jail.

The Webster campus has grown through two addition and renovation phases, with an average daily inmate population of 850, total bed space for 1,050 inmates and a security and support staff of approximately 150 personnel. The entire compound is approximately 50 acres, enclosed within a maximum-security perimeter fence, allowing for all future expansion projects to be conducted within a secured and monitored space.
