New Henderson Detention Center Expansion

In January, 2010, the City of Henderson Police Department broke ground on its new expansion to the Henderson Detention Center. This new facility will be able to house and care for, an additional 250 persons either arrested within the City of Henderson, or through contract with outside agencies, bringing the total capacity of the facility to 540 inmates. Included within this expansion are new and improved health care facilities, recreation yards, inmate programs areas, office space and employee work areas. The Henderson Detention Center boasts new energy efficient upgrades such as: Low Energy Lighting, Lighting Sensors that automatically shuts lights off to rooms not occupied, water conservation extras to include xeroscape landscaping and finally, a ventilation system that can detect the outside temperature and shut itself down to use the outside air during times of nice weather. The Jail Expansion and all renovations were completed July 2011.
