The Harford County Detention Center opened in 1973 with a capacity of 100 inmates. Alterations and additions were constructed over the years with the last expansion opening in 1997, increasing the capacity to 474. Thirty-three beds are considered temporary housing and are not included in the capacity total. Those beds are reserved for classification housing, isolation, and medical cells. Yet another expansion is in the final stages with construction scheduled to begin during the summer of 2008, which will add 288 beds to the facility for a total capacity of 762.
