Brookings County Detention Center Expansion and Remodel
The Brookings County Detention Center is an approximately 11,000 square foot facility with a housing capacity of 54 inmates. The current Detention Center was built in 1975 and remodeled in 1999. The Detention Center is attached to the Sheriff’s administrative office space and next to the Brookings County Courthouse, a historical structure built in 1912.
The scope of work comprises approximately 19,200 square feet of new construction and almost 4,800 square feet of renovation within the existing detention center. The project includes the construction of 84 adult inmate beds for general housing, temporary housing for juvenile offenders, a kitchen, rec room space and two safe rooms to house individuals in protective custody. The new facility would also include a room for family and friends to visit inmates via video visitation.
