The Harold R. Banke Justice Center opened for business on November 6, 2000, just two years after ground was broken. The 727,500 square foot facility is located at 9151 Tara Boulevard.
The Justice Center is one of the most technologically secure facilities of its kind in the country. It houses a 1,536 bed detention center, the county sheriff's headquarters, and court facilities, including 18 courtrooms. Construction began in October 1998.
In addition to the inmate housing and court services, the Justice Center will house ancillary offices, including the Clerk of Superior & Magistrate Courts, Clerk of State Court, and the Sheriff's Administration Offices.
