The Dearborn County
Law Enforcement Center was built between 1990 and 1991. The sheriff
when the building was built was Sheriff Russell Cunningham who was
completing his second four-year term when the facility was built.
The new facility was built on the west end of High Street, replacing
the old jail that was located just next to the courthouse.
The Dearborn County Law
Enforcement Center is a 200+ bed facility that also accommodates the
sheriff's department. The Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center has
24-hour-a-day surveillance cameras that keep a constant eye on both
the inside and outside of the facility. In addition to the above
listed offices, there is also an attached sally port where inmates
are unloaded from vehicles. The sally port is completely secure and
keeps inmates from fleeing an officer and trying to escape while
being escorted from the police car to the jail. The Dearborn County
Law Enforcement Center is equipped with computers and other
modern-day equipment in order to keep the facility an up-to-date law
