Ramsey County Jail and LEC

Ramsey County

Ramsey County, in need of more beds in their detention facilities and courtroom space, commissioned Wold to plan and design a new Jail and Law Enforcement Center. The 297,000 SF facility was designed to reduce detainee movement by maintaining single-level detainee movement from the vehicle sally port, booking, housing, and court. A new pre-booking area allows municipal police to bring detainees to the LEC directly, without having to detour to their local stations to first prepare arrest reports. Building Design Features:

  • 500 bed Jail
  • Pre-trial Courtroom Complex
  • Sherriff’s Administrative Staff Office Headquarter
  • Peace Officers Training Center
  • Firing Range
  • Two Arraignment Courts
