Major Anthony Rhodes, the Jail Division Director, and his staff of experienced professionals invite you to look through the Jail Division web pages for useful information.
The Fayette County Jail is primarily a pre-trial Detention Center where persons accused of crimes that cannot bond out, await their court dates.
The Fayette County Jail also houses persons sentenced to serve up to 12 months and persons sentenced for more serious crimes until space is available at State facilities.
With over 404 beds in one facility, a medical unit, and serving about 900 meals per day, the operation of the Fayette County Jail is equivalent to that of a small town. The primary concerns for the Officers on a daily basis are the safety and security of the inmates, visitors and staff while performing all the functions necessary to make the jail efficient.
All this is accomplished 24 hours a day, seven days a week by 93 professional men and women.
The Jail Division prides itself on the dedication, integrity and honesty of these Officers. The Jail Officers work very hard and willingly go beyond the requirements of their normal duties to perform their tasks. It is because of the quality and dedication of these Officers that we believe the Fayette County Jail is one of the best in the State.
In addition to the Officers hired by the Sheriff to operate the Jail, the Sheriff’s Office also uses contracted services operated by professionals in their respective fields to reduce costs and insure quality. Two of these service providers are directly related to inmate care. These providers include Correct Health which is responsible for the 24 hour healthcare of inmates and Trinity Services Group which manages food services and oversees the nutritional needs of inmates. Both companies are partnered with the Sheriff's Office to provide superior services with a strong commitment to keep costs down.
