The new Greene County Sheriff’s Office and Jail is 360,000 SF and doubles the capacity of the jail to 1,242 beds. The facility was also planned for another 672 cells which can be added for future expansion.
The main housing unit for inmates consists of 12 pods with 56 beds in each. Inmates on work release or work jobs inside the jail itself will be housed in four dorm-style pods with 24 people in each, and a second dorm of four pods with 50 beds each. The dorm style housing is a cost-effective approach to increase bed count. The building includes 16 video court booths, a dedicated space for inmates to attend virtual court hearings, which alleviated a budget concern of Greene County to bus inmates to their downtown courts.
