Broward County, Florida, was created on October 1, 1915, from parts of Dade and Palm Beach counties. It was named after former Governor Napoleon Bonaparte Broward. The county seat is Fort Lauderdale. With a population of 1,748,066 in 2010, it ranks second in the state and 18th in the U.S. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east. The total area of the county is 1,323 square miles, but only about 471 square miles is developable. Much of the county lies in the Everglades, and the average elevation is only 6 feet above sea level. The residents of the county are mostly white (43.5%), African American (25.7%), or Hispanic (25.1%).

There are four jail facilities in Broward County, all managed by the Sheriff’s Office: the Main Jail, Joseph V. Conte Facility, North Broward Bureau, and Paul Rein Detention Facility. The address and phone number for each location may be found on the website.

The Main Jail is located in Fort Lauderdale and can house 1,538 inmates. The maximum security facility houses all males in an eight-story structure built adjacent to the County Courthouse in 1985. An average of 65 juveniles awaiting trial in adult courts are held separately from the adult inmates. All visitation is by video only.

The Joseph V. Conte Facility is a medium security all-male holding area for prisoners awaiting trial. Opened in 1999, it houses up to 1,328 inmates in Pompano Beach. Scheduled visits are allowed; check the website for days and times.

Also located in Pompano Beach, the North Broward Bureau can house 1,200 inmates. This is a special needs facility, designed for both male and female offenders–including juvenile females–who have medical issues, are mentally ill, or need protective custody. It was opened in 1979 and offers minimum to medium security. Visitation is available during the afternoon and evening. The daily schedule is based on the classification of the inmate.

The third jail in Pompano Beach is the Paul Rein Detention Facility, which opened in 2004. As many as 1,020 male and female inmates are housed separately in two four-story towers, in medium to maximum security areas. Inmates may have visitors; check the visitation schedule on the website.

This stretch of I-595 reminds us of dangers faced by first responders called to incidents on busy roads. 13 years ago today, Deputy Ryan Seguin was performing a stop here when struck and killed by a vehicle. Slow down and move over, when safe to do so, for any vehicles stopped.
