The Sheriff’s Department is responsible for housing those individuals that have been charged with misdemeanor and felony charges. Once booked and housed in the jail, these individuals are considered inmates.
The jail is currently state certified for 386 inmates. The jail is comprised of an intake area where inmates are booked into the jail computer system. Once booked, inmates are classified and housed accordingly.
Lastly, male inmates charged with felonies are housed in the maximum security portion of the jail. This area consists of individual cells housing inmates with similar charges. Inmates in the max pod remain in their cells except while out on recreation.
