 ** Jail Policy and Procedures information links are located at the bottom of this page.

The first known jail was located in the McDowell area. The jail was a log building with an opening on the roof. A ladder was used to put the inmates in & get them out. Food and water was lowered by a bucket and rope.

 Before the courthouse burned down, the jail was located on the 3rd story. After the fire, it was not moved back into the courthouse that now exists.

 A one room cell was built that was located in the now existing Commerce Bank parking lot.

 In 1971, the jail and Sheriff’s office was built at its current location. It included 6 cells, a female cell, a detention cell and a kitchen. The jail could house a total of 16 inmates.

 By 1995-96 it became necessary to do the first expansion of the jail. A single “pod” was added and the inmate capacity was 32.

 In 2005 the need for more room was becoming more prevalent. By 2006 the daily average for inmate population was 44.

2007 – the daily average was 47

2008 – the daily average had grown to a strenuous 49.

 With the new addition of 2 more “pods” the maximum capacity of the jail is now 80.

One of the unique features that we’ve included in our new pods is the triple bunks in each cell. This allows us to utilize more space effectively.

 The Jail employs 11 Correctional Officers aka Jailers. This allows for a minimum of 2 per shift. This increases the safety and well being for both the Jailers and inmates.

All meals are prepared at the jail. 

The jail is operated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
