The Tarrant County Lon Evans Corrections Center is a medium-security detention center located at 600 W Weatherford St Ft. Worth, TX which is operated locally by the Tarrant 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. Tarrant County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Ft. Worth Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Texas Commission on Jail Standards sets rules and procedures, establishes minimum standards for the construction, maintenance, and operation of county jails. The Tarrant County Detention Bureau has passed this certification every year since 1995. In October 2012, Tarrant County received certification on the Lon Evans Correction Center, a 207,700 square foot, five-story maximum-security facility.

The Detention Bureau is staffed with approximately 1,000 men and women certified as detention officers or peace officers (sheriff's deputies) by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE). The Tarrant County Jail has a capacity of approximately 5,000 prisoners and is comprised of five facilities.

The Tarrant County Jail Industries is located inside the Tarrant County Corrections Center. This unit is supervised by one officer and consists of 15 - 18 female volunteer inmate trustees who would like to learn a profession in the sewing industry. This unit produces items such as inmate mattresses, mattress covers and inmate clothing. They also make bedding for inmates classified as needing special precautions. The unit also produces specialized clothing and leather goods for the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office. Besides saving taxpayers money by manufacturing items in-house, the unit is able to turn repaired uniforms and bedding items around quicker and more efficiently than out-sourcing the items.

The Detention Bureau offers inmates opportunities to improve their education while in custody. Courses offered are General Educational Development (G.E.D.) and English as a Second Language. All facilities provide a full spectrum of inmate counseling services, medical and psychological services.

Inmates have access to the Law Library, to prepare their own legal documents, and the Recreational Library.
