City of Henderson Detention Center Expansion

The Henderson Detention Center, originally built in 1994 to house 262 inmates, is being expanded by 73,827 sq ft to add an additional 250 beds, with a new public entry, vehicle sally port, booking area and administration building. Another 8,000 sq ft is being renovated, including an improved kitchen, exercise rooms and a new staff lounge with an exterior patio. The housing pods maximize space efficiency and minimize inmate movement. Two housing pods share classrooms, interview rooms and outdoor recreation areas.
