Burton Creek Justice Center
A new Justice Center is currently in the early stages of

safety and justice services through 2030 and beyond.

The design concept includes combining the following services into
one location: sheriff, administration, patrol, investigations, 911
dispatch, 8-bed type II jail, minimum security inmate house,
district attorney, probation and one trial court with associated
The project phasing is anticipated to allow for the continued
operation of the existing facility during the construction of the
new Justice Center. Upon completion, the original building will be
demolished to provide appropriate parking for the new facility.
