The Harris County/City of Houston Joint Processing Center (JPC), is a distinct and efficient facility combining four different jail operations within the same facility. The new facility expedites inmate booking and frees up as many as 100 officers from jail duty saving more than $4 million in operating costs.

With a vast span of over 246,000 square feet, the three-story facility includes newly designed cost-saving features such as a digital booking system, county, and municipal courtrooms, inmate holding cells, dormitories, and a medical health clinic.
