The North Broward Bureau is a minimum to medium-security, special needs detention facility housing male and female offenders. The facility also houses protective custody of female offenders and female juveniles. The facility currently holds 1,200 inmates. The primary mission of the facility is to house and manage the mentally ill, medically infirm and special needs inmate population. The facility has operated on its present site since 1979: older facilities that became obsolete have been razed and replaced with more modern and useful facilities.
