Pre-Trial Detention Facility

Pre-Trial Detention FacilityWe, as corrections professionals, have the opportunity and the responsibility to make a positive difference in the lives of those individuals confined in our facilities. The difference that we make not only impacts the individual but our Jacksonville community as a whole. Returning from incarceration to the community a productive, law-abiding citizen decreases victimization and reduces the potential for future criminality, thus reducing recidivism. By continuing to implement correctional practices which contribute to the effectiveness of our criminal justice system our future includes:

  • increasing recognition of our role within the criminal justice community and the general public;
  • continuing to provide, through treatment and educational programs for those incarcerated within our facilities, the skills and abilities to become productive citizens in our community;
  • providing the opportunity for management and line staff to work together on problem resolution and establishing joint ownership of the results; and
  • increasing the consistency of the operations of all three of our correctional facilities.

Our team of over 650 dedicated corrections professionals and civilian personnel continue to be responsive to the community, restorative in character and responsible to our commitments. From judicial, classification and program services at the Jails Division to the operation of the agricultural and community based programs within the Prisons Division, the members of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, Department of Corrections, go forward in the quest to become the nationally recognized correctional leader.
