The Corrections Division is the largest division within the Sheriff’s Office, employing 24 full-time Corrections Deputies and an Administrator. The Corrections Division operates two jails, the Detention Facility (Full-Service) and a Minimum Security Jail.

The Detention Facility is a 41 bed facility housing adult men and women charged with or convicted of Misdemeanor and/or Felony offenses.

The Sheriff’s Office has switched to a new video visitation system. Each person wishing to visit must set up an account with Securus at  You will be required to submit a clear copy of a VALID Drivers License or State ID as well as a picture. If you fail to provide a picture of your ID or it is not legible, you will be denied access. You are responsible for scheduling your visits. Visitation is Monday-Saturday from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. There will be no visits from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM, 1:30 PM to 2:00 PM, and 5:00 PM to 5:30 PM. No visits on Sundays. The website will advise of all rules pertaining to video visits and the disclaimer that if rules are violated, visitation privileges can be suspended or terminated.

The Minimum Security Jail is a 48 bed dormitory style facility. Even though the court might say that they will make it available, the jail makes final determination of who can be housed there. If an offender qualifies for the Minimum Security jail then inmates are able to bring in certain things with you. Inmates are allowed to bring in $100 cash at the initial booking. If you bring your own bible in you may take it with you when you are released. If you get work release then you may bring your work clothes with you but you only have a small locker so you can not fit a lot of items in there. Work release and House Arrest is set up through probation before coming to jail.

Our current inmate information is now available directly from the JailTracker interface at the link below:
