Prisons in Tarrant County, Texas

Tarrant County Prisons can be categorized by level of security: minimum, medium, or maximum. Minimum Security Prisons allow inmates considerable daily movement and are intended for non-violent criminals and inmates who pose little risk of escape or threat to prison staff or other inmates. Medium Security Prisons are somewhat more restrictive facilities, but still allow for daily movement and house inmates in housing units instead of cells. Maximum Security Prisons are reserved for the most violent offenders and those who pose the highest escape threat, and these facilities place the greatest restrictions on inmates.

In Texas, State Prisons are run by a Department of Corrections (DOC) or the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). Federal Prisons are the responsibility of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP). While most prisons are owned and operated by government agencies, many prisons have been privatized. Private prisons are owned and operated by for-profit companies under contract with government agencies, though oversight of private prisons remains the responsibility of Tarrant County, Texas State, and Federal Government.
