Comal County Sheriff's Office Corrections Division

The Comal County Jail, as all county jails in the State of Texas, is operated and maintained by the County Sheriff. The jail is located in the Comal County seat of New Braunfels, Texas. The first jail was in the historic limestone Comal County Courthouse in downtown New Braunfels, where inmates were housed from 1939 through 1985. In 1985, the Walter Fellers Law Enforcement Center Sheriff’s Office opened at 3005 W. San Antonio Street. This building contained the jail with a maximum occupancy of 144 beds. For decades, the County experienced tremendous growth and in order to keep pace, the jail was expanded and nearly doubled in size in 1999 to 337 beds. The new Comal County Jail, located at 3000 IH 35 South, opened August 2020, with 582 housing beds and the infrastructure for a total buildout between 900-1000 beds. The jail holds all Comal County inmates and has agreements in place to hold other county and federal inmates as space is available.
