Columbia County Detention Facility

Columbia County is relocating their County Detention facility to be co-located within the existing Columbia County Sheriff’s Administration Complex.  The new facility will also provide for a much needed increase in inmate capacity. The projected scope will include two housing pods that will provide for up to 500 beds each.  The configuration of these pods will vary from single cell to open dorm style and will include adjacent support facilities such as food service, laundry and healthcare services.

The project will also provide for jail administration space and additional administration space for the Sheriff’s Office.  This will be accomplished by either renovating a portion of the existing building or adding a new building for this purpose.  Also in the works is the addition of a new crime lab as part of the complex.  The project is currently in the programming/conceptual stage of design and groundbreaking is planned for early to mid-2019.
