Irving City Jail

Facts/Information Page

 The Irving City Jail is a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week operation for the temporary confinement of pre-trial individuals involved in the judicial process, as well as those individuals serving time assessed on misdemeanor Irving Municipal Court cases.  The jail has a maximum capacity of 172 adult prisoners as well as a holding area for juveniles that are being detained.  For more information please follow the links below.

Additionally, the Irving Police Department Jail is the national pilot site for the High School Student Jail Internship Program. Students from The Irving Academy High School are chosen to participate in the internship program. It requires that student interns have 300 or more hours of specialized training in their career area of study (corrections/detentions), maintain an A or B academic average and also have a high employability skills grade (timeliness, professionalism, meeting goals, teamwork, technology ethics).

Student interns are expected to maintain a high degree of professionalism. Each student intern works with a mentor/trainer and has the opportunity to watch them as they perform their job duties and assist them in performing tasks which do not require prisoner contact such as entering data into the Corrections Management System, using the door control system, and processing court paperwork from arraignments.
