Grand Forks County Correctional Center

Grand Forks, ND

Project Overview

The existing downtown jail in Grand Forks, North Dakota was outdated and at capacity. The decision to move the jail to the outskirts of town and build a new building was made, and the old building was transformed into a juvenile detention center. The Grand Forks County Correctional Center is a correctional center of the highest quality incorporating flexible and multi-purpose design solutions. The building features 230 total beds and inmate housing, a municipal courtroom and judge chambers, office space, video visitation, a secure sally port, visitor processing, and support services. The building was designed for County, State, and Federal prisoners with a diverse blend of functions. The Grand Forks County Correctional Center houses women, men, and different classifications of criminals, has a work-release program, and features short-term holding cells including padded and ADA cells.
