Chambers County asked Vanir to perform a needs assessment and develop a long range plan for judicial, detention, law enforcement, and other government functions and facilities.
A new justice center will house the county-wide judicial and detention facilities, allowing the County to take advantage of safety improvements and operational efficiencies while also accommodating projected future growth. It will include County and District Courts and related functions, the Sheriff’s Office, and the County Jail.
The long range plan includes the historic renovation of the courthouse, an important community symbol of Chambers County, to support non-secure County government functions. Eleven other existing facilities will be upgraded.
