The Anderson County Jail was constructed in 1957, though one addition was added back in the 1990’s. As Anderson County has grown, so have the number of people that the detention center now houses. It is not uncommon for the facility to run beyond its intended capacity.

The Anderson County Detention Center is primarily a PRE-TRAIL detention facility. That means the majority of the inmates (approximately 85%) have not been convicted of the crime for which they are being held. Of the inmates being held that are POST-CONVICTION, a number are used to provide labor services to Anderson County. This inmate labor saves the taxpayers of Anderson County hundreds of thousands of dollars per year In fact, in an average month, there are roughly 9000 man hours of inmate labor performed in Anderson County, that if based on minimum wage, comes to over $783,000 annually in savings.

The overall goal of the detention center is to provide a secure, sanitary and safe place of pre-trial incarceration in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible, while ensuring inmates receive humane, respectful and professional treatment from detention personnel. The Anderson County Detention Administration works to assure continued oversight and compliance with standards set forth by the State and Local Jail Standards, while providing realistic career development, strategic planning, training and safety for management and staff personnel.
