Placeholder Image

The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors and Sheriff Adam Christianson along with other State and Local Officials in Stanislaus County are going to break ground for the historic $113 million public safety center expansion and the public is invited to attend.

The groundbreaking ceremony for the jail expansion is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 15 at 9:30 a.m., at the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department, 250 E. Hackett Road, Ceres.

The project is part of a massive State funding of local jail projects. This is the first of its kind in the state.

The project, which is a partnership between the State of California and Stanislaus County, is the first AB 900 Phase II (2011 Local Jail Construction Financing Program) project in the state to be established by the State Public Works Board and to begin construction. The construction effort will consist of three separate projects including two Maximum Security Housing units with medical/mental health space, a Day Reporting Center for life skills and job training, and an Intake, Release and Transportation facility.

The project is scheduled to be complete in late 2016.
