The Department of Corrections Adult Residential Center's buildings were constructed as needs for minimum security detention housing facilities rose. The first was built in 1987, the second in 1993, and the third in 1997. The newest residential facility and a programs building opened in 2005 and 2007. The main objective of the Residential Center program is to reintegrate clients into the community as successful, productive citizens.
The Johnson County Department of Corrections Adult Residential Center is a 398 bed, community based, facility that provides a highly structured environment for adult offenders ordered by the District Court to our program.
