The Lubbock County Detention Centre (LCDC) is one of the largest direct supervision county detention facilities in Texas with a current capacity of 1500 beds. Since its opening in 2010, the facility has utilised the Morse Watchmans key control system, along with other state of the art electronic security and access control systems, to increase the safety and security of both inmates and staff.

According to Captain Malcolm Chambliss, Day Shift Captain and Detention Response Team Commander with the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office, the new LCDC facility was planned with the use of advanced technology as a high priority. He says the Morse Watchmans automated key control system, introduced to the planning committee by the architect, was a perfect match for LCDC’s objective of more effectively and safely operating the facility through the use of high end security technology.
