The Nueces County TX Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 901 Leopard St Corpus Christi, TX which is operated locally by the Nueces 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. Nueces County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Corpus Christi Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Nueces County Sheriff's Office Alternative Incarcerations and Jail Industries Programs were created and initially implemented in the mid-1980s to help relieve severe jail overcrowding conditions in the Nueces County Jail. It was the prototype for many statewide programs. The Alternative Incarcerations/Jail Industries Program currently serves approximately 168 Coastal Bend non-profit agencies by providing labor and other needed services. This option is offered to low-risk inmates as a way of reducing jail time and giving back to the community. Court-ordered community service participants are also used in providing services to these non-profit agencies. These agencies include the Food Bank of Corpus Christi, The Salvation Army, Special Olympics, the Women's shelter, and numerous youth sports leagues.
