Jail Facilities

The Jail Facilities

Corrections Officers work in the jail taking care of the inmates.

They are also required to have 24 hours of continuing education a year, in areas of self-defense, fire training, CPR, and jail training.

The inmates are fed three meals a day and have access to medical care and mental counseling if needed.

Control Room

The control room officer monitors security cameras mounted both inside and outside the jail.

The control room officer can easily lock and unlock doors by seeing who needs to get in and out of the rooms.

By using this technology, inmates are unable to escape, allowing only the officers in and out of the rooms.


The jail has eight separate housing areas comprising dorms containing 124 beds.

Inmates may walk around their dorm freely between 5:30 am and 11:30 pm, at which time the inmates are required to be in their bed unless traveling to and from the restroom.

The jail is full almost all of the time.

Holding Cell

The four holding cells are used to keep the intoxicated inmates away from the other inmates until they are sober. At that time, they are moved into a dorm.

Lockdown Cells

The twelve lockdown cells are used primarily for problem inmates or for inmates receiving disciplinary action.

Video Arraignment

For a case hearing, the accused are placed in a room that is linked by video and audio to the court. (only used for municipal court)

Laundry Room

Inmates are able to wash and dry their clothes using facilities within the jail.


All of the food is prepared by hand in the kitchen by the cooks. The inmates are fed three meals a day.
