Jackson County Jail

The current Jackson County Jail was finished in July 2002. Our jail houses both male and female inmates and has a capacity to house up to 172 inmates, providing a secure and controlled environment for those entrusted to our care. As the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, we are committed to upholding the law and ensuring the safety of both inmates and the public.

Our jail staff consists of 15 detention officers, a medical team including a full-time LPN, and a physician on call who visits twice weekly. Our kitchen and maintenance supervisors manage trustees in the kitchen and throughout the jail and sheriff's office.

We understand the significance of maintaining connections between inmates and their loved ones. Our jail facilitates video visitation within established guidelines to ensure the safety and security of all parties involved. In addition, we provide various communication options, such as phone calls and mail, to enable ongoing contact between inmates and their families or legal representatives.
