Douglas County Jail opened in June 1998, and was a state-of-the-art detention facility with 192 cells, capable of holding 284 inmates in its four housing pods. In 1998 the Average Daily Population (ADP) was 104 inmates. As part of its original purpose, the Justice Center was designed to accommodate the need for future expansion without the need to purchase additional land. As a result of the continued inmate population growth in 2005, the County expanded the jail by opening Pods E and F. This expansion increased our inmate capacity to 464 inmates, with an 80% operating ADP of 372 inmates.
In late 2011 Douglas County Jail began the process of upgrading the facility’s security system. This was project was necessary as the current system has had many ongoing maintenance problems which were not cost effective to repair. For this project the County contracted with Sierra Detention Systems to complete the upgrade. Sierra Detention Systems is a local company which is important to the ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting of the new system. The planning portion of the project was completed in 2011 and the new system will be installed in 2012.
