Shelby Justice Center


Location: Shelby, Ohio

Completion Date: 2014

Project Size: 33,000 s.f.

Project Cost: $5.1 million


This project was necessitated by a 100-year flood in the downtown Shelby area that rendered the city’s existing municipal facilities uninhabitable. The new facilities were relocated away from the downtown area to land that is not in the flood plain. The new facility is divided into three areas a new police department, a new courts facility and a new jail.


The courts area includes a courtroom, jury room, attorney conference rooms, probation department offices and a judges chambers and bailiff and prosecutor offices.


The 19x27 control room is located in the center of the building, providing security for the entire building. The control room will feature camera systems that can monitor both inside and outside the building.
