BIG HORN COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT CENTER
GGA’s design for Big Horn County’s new Law Enforcement Center is noteworthy for several reasons. This facility embodies an exceptionally staff-efficient 11⁄2-post design for 88 beds in a podular, multi-custody arrangement. In addition, the facility includes a six-bed juvenile pod for short-term youth detainees. At times when youth are not being housed, this separate pod can accommodate additional female prisoners or special-needs adults.
Project financing was made possible through economic development revenue bonds with the assistance of state grants, thereby avoiding additional taxes. GGA functioned as Project Designer and Security Consultant to the County’s local architect.
