There are two facilities under the Volusia County’s Corrections Division jurisdiction: the Volusia County Branch Jail and the Volusia County Correctional Facility. Both are off U.S. 92, west of Daytona Beach and east of DeLand.
The Volusia County Branch Jail (VCBJ) was completed in late 1986 and became operational in 1987. The Correctional Facility and the The Volusia County Branch Jail is designed to hold fewer inmates than they currently confine. The initial design capacity of the Volusia County Branch Jail is 601; it’s authorized capacity is 899.
The mission of Volusia County’s Corrections Services is the constitutional detention of persons accused of violation of the law and awaiting trial, in the process of trial, convicted and sentenced to county institutions and those being detained for other agencies.
The Volusia County Division of Corrections is a Volusia County correctional agency, supported by local property tax dollars. Volusia’s jails are inspected annually by certified county jail inspectors from other county jails in accordance with the Florida Model Jail Standards. The annual inspection includes a population status report; a review of admission, classification, and release policies; an inspection of housing and food service areas, security and control, and sanitation. Volusia County’s correctional facilities were recently certified to be in compliance with the Florida Model Jail Standards on June 3, 2011.

Can I call and speak to an inmate?
No. However, inmates have access to a telephone in their cell block and are permitted to make collect calls only. Due to the size of the inmate population, it is not possible for corrections staff to take and relay personal messages to inmates. Emergency messages are taken, but will be validated first, before being given to the inmate. If you have information about an inmate’s medical or mental health that is current and relevant to their in-custody care, you may call the jail’s main number and ask to speak with clinic staff. Inmates may also correspond by mail.
