The Calhoun County Jail is operated by the Sheriff of Calhoun County. The Calhoun County Commission has the responsibility for funding the operations of the jail. The Commission determines the number of staff and the annual operating budget. The primary function of this institution is the maintenance of those individuals who must be held in custody pending disposition of their respective cases by the Courts.
Generally, custody in this institution is not intended to be punitive. Most men and women incarcerated here have not been tried by the Courts and so must be presumed innocent until such time as guilt has been determined by the law. Some of the inmates here have been tried and are sentenced County and/or State inmates. Federal inmates are also housed in this institution.
The jail has a normal capacity of about 370 inmates. Jail’s average daily population has increased from 180 to 430. Offenses vary from inmate to inmate, however, about 38% are charged with probation violation or failure to appear, and approximately 25% are charged with some form of drug or alcohol offense.
