Fort Bend County Jail Expands

16 09 2009

An Open House was held yesterday marking the completion of Fort Bend County’s Jail Expansion Project.  Inmate capacity is now doubled.

The nearly 250,000 square foot expansion cost about $88 million. The new jail expansion adds just over a 1,000 beds and expands the overall housing capacity to more than 1,700 inmates.

“I commend the citizens of Fort Bend County for letting us put this facility up. It will continue to serve the citizens of Fort Bend County for decades to come,” said Judge Robert Hebert.

The Fort Bend Co. Sheriff’s Office will begin transferring prisoners into the new expansion later this month.

Hopefully they won’t have to fill the new facility to capacity.
