The bond supported Comal County Jail, a $64 million, 589 bed project began in 2018. Comal County has struggled for years with jail space for our growing community and we will now have room to house the prisoners we need to without paying to house them out of county.
The jail is now complete and housing of prisoners will begin at the end of September 2020. It is a state of the art facility designed to safely and efficiently house prisoners while providing the highest levels of safety for our corrections officer and the public. It should serve the County for a number of years, but it is readily expandable to an approximately 900 bed facility by adding two pods to the west end of the current facility.
