The Tule River Tribe of California is getting ready to open a $16 million justice center.

The $16 million Tule River Justice Center will serve multiple purposes. It will house the tribe's social services agencies, justice services and rehabilitation services, in addition to the tribe's court.

The 43,600 square-foot facility also functions as a federal courthouse. A traveling judge will hear civil disputes there.

The Tulare County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol will have space in the justice center as well. The two-story building should be ready for use by the end of the year.

“It is on schedule and under budget,” project manager Dave Nenna told The Porterville Recorder.
