Jail Operations

The Jail Operations Division is responsible for providing a safe and humane environment for our residential inmate population, protecting the inmate population from victimization within the facility, and providing access to a system of due process internal to the facility.


This division ensures public safety by providing professionally managed jail services to inmates pursuant to judgments of the courts, provides protection for the public and staff, provides the court with pertinent information and effective services for use in pre-sentencing processes and decisions, and speaks with courts and attorneys concerning the jail and resolves problems or concerns.
