With over 4 million residents, Harris County is the most populated county in Texas, and the third-most populated county in the nation. Houston serves as the county seat for Harris County.
Noteworthy: Harris County has executed more prisoners than any other county in the nation. Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice began investigating the Harris County jail system after civil rights and religious groups raised concerns about poor sanitation and health conditions. The Harris County jail system houses almost 10,000 inmates, a number exceeding the entire prison system of many states.
