About the Lew Sterrett Justice Center

The detention centers at Lew Sterrett are designed to house up to 7,100 inmates. On average, there is a daily population of 6,500 inmates at any given time. These include people who did not post bail and are awaiting a court hearing; prisoners waiting to be transferred to a state or federal institution; and inmates who were summoned from other facilities to appear before a Dallas County judge. Lately, the jail has been packed full of pretrial inmates charged with everything from outstanding traffic tickets to capital murder. It’s not a place you want to stay for very long if you can help it.

The South TowerThis is a direct-supervision facility. It is designed with rows of cells surrounding a common area.
