Freeborn County Government Center
The 112,000 square foot Freeborn County Government Center provides new county courts, administrative office, law enforcement center and a jail onto a compact downtown site around the original 1888 courthouse. The design provides for 180-beds using a direct supervision model. The jail’s design is focused on minimizing inmate movement, minimizing supervision requirements and maximizing staffing efficiency.
