Broward Transitional Center

The Broward Transitional Center is a private ICE detention center managed by the GEO Group that is located in Pompano Beach, Florida. This facility houses both male and female detainees who are in the custody of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

This ICE detention facility is one of the few “purpose-built” community correctional centers of this size in the United States. The Broward Transitional Center consists of a two-story building. It is designed and constructed to blend in with the community setting, and to provide privacy, separation by gender, and full support space for the residents and staff. 

The facility features a kitchen building, expanded medical clinic and courtroom areas as well as a 14,000 square foot office building for client use. The maximum capacity at Broward Transitional Center is 700 inmates.

For information about an ICE detainee housed at the Broward Transitional Center, call (954) 973-4485 between 8 am and 4 pm. When you call, you must have the detainee's information ready, including their full name (first, last, and hyphenated), any known aliases, their date of birth, and their country of birth.
