Harris County Joint

Processing Center

This facility features a three-story center that combines both county and city inmate processing to streamline government operations and the criminal justice process.

 

The 250,000 square-foot facility contains detainee processing areas, temporary holding cells, medical health services, arraignment courtrooms, a 585-bed short-term inmate housing area and operation areas for both the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and the City of Houston Police Department.

The structure is concrete, complete with a brick façade and ribbon windows. The interior walls contain security glazing at all detention areas to meet jail security standards. A secure-zone tunnel system, constructed under an active roadway, connects the Joint Processing Center to existing and future jail facilities. Additionally, a new paved road on the north side of the facility provides access to the north entrance.

The Harris County Joint Processing Center is designed to achieve LEED® certification.
