Our Detention Division consists of a combination of Deputy Sheriffs and Detention Officers who operate and support a modern detention facility constructed in 1991.This 224-bed facility has all modern security systems, medical services, holding cells, suicide watch, four isolation cells, and an intoxication tank. Included in the design is a secure sally port for inmate intake, and an interior visitation area, with a phone extension at each window for conversations.
In addition to housing individuals on local charges, the Crisp County Detention Center is an approved federal housing facility, contracted to house inmates for the United States Marshals Service and the United States Bureau of Prisons. These contracts allow for savings in operating costs which would otherwise have to be paid for from local funds.
Crisp County Sheriff’s Office is committed to the operation of a facility that will meet state standards and for the preservation of basic human rights of the inmate populations by the Constitution of the United States of America.
