It is our duty to serve all citizens of Jackson County by providing a safe, secure facility where people are treated with dignity and respect and learn to be accountable for their actions.

The Jackson County Jail houses those charged and awaiting trial, those arrested on warrants, those serving sentences at the county jail, those held by Parole and Probation, and those sentenced to and awaiting beds in the State prison system.

Our Jail houses subjects accused of all levels of charges. We are responsible for securely holding all of these individuals as well as providing a safe environment for the staff, the public and the offenders.

Pretrial confinement is not for punishment purposes. It is merely to assure that the arrestee appears in court. Sentenced inmates, on the other hand, are here as punishment for their offense. It is the responsibility of the Jail Commander and staff to make productive use of the inmates’ time, but not to inflict further punishment upon them.
