The Douglas Co Coreectional is a detention center located at 710 S 17th St Omaha, NE which is operated locally by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Douglas County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Omaha Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Nebraska here.

Inmates held at the Douglas County Correction Center or Criminal Justice Center may be pre-trial,post-trial, or held for other agencies. Inmates are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of legal jurisdiction.

Douglas County Correctional Center was opened in July 1979. It was designed with 12 housing units that held a total of 200 single bed cells.

By 1983, the majority of the single cells were double-bunked to bring the capacity to 363 beds.

In April 1989, the annex was added to the Correctional Center. Eight dormitory-style housing units were added with 354 beds and 2 isolation cells. This brought the capacity to 719 beds.

In June 2005, construction of the Correctional Center was completed, adding nine housing units with 62 beds each and a medical housing unit that can accommodate a combination of 61 male and female inmates. This brings our total capacity to 1,449 beds.

In 2016, Douglas County voters approved a public safety bond, a portion of which was allotted for the renovation of identified areas within the Correctional Center to include projects for painting, plumbing, windows, and lighting to create a more energy-efficient and safe environment.
