Justice Center Opens in Cooke Co.

4-17-06 - The grand opening of the Cooke County Justice Center took place Monday. Over 300 people attended Monday morning’s grand opening and got a first look at the new $10.5 million project.

Two years ago voters approved a bond to build the new justice center located on County Road 451. The center contains offices for the sheriff’s department, a 911 call center, and a jail. The new facility can house more than 200 inmates, as the old jail only held 71.

Two new EMS facilities are also under construction in Cooke County and are expected to be complete in two months.

Cooke County expects to start transferring inmates within the next few days.
