​​HOUSTON - Construction on the $100 million Joint Processing Center in Houston officially began in late October, and is scheduled to last 24 months.

The three-story, 250,000-sf Joint Processing Center will help streamline city and county operations to eliminate duplicate processing efforts.

The center is located at 700 North San Jacinto St.

The Joint Processing Center will have temporary holding cells, medical facilities and cells, arraignment courtrooms, short-term inmate housing and operations areas for the County Sheriff and City Police departments.

The construction team will also build a secure-zone tunnel system to connect the center to existing and future facilities.

The Joint Processing Center is designed to achieve LEED certification.
