The facility will be divided into separate police and fire areas, with administrative offices, public records storage, prisoner processing and detention, lockers and a fitness room, and a training and community meeting room. The building will include three bays for fire apparatus and a sally port for the safe transfer of prisoners between police vehicles and detention facility.
