Scott County Jail

Client: Scott County

Project: Scott County Jail

Details: Scott County in Indiana settled in 1804.  The new court house and jail were constructed in Scottsburg in 1874.  In 2015, after 10 years on planning the Scott County Jail has been expanded and upgraded.  There was a detrimental need for a larger building with more cells and updated security.  The existing jail is continuously overcrowded, creating a space and monetary concern, making it necessary for inmates to be transferred to different facilities.  The new addition provides approximately three hundred additional beds for inmates and a new state of the art security system for both the addition and existing jail.
