Mission Statement of the Jefferson County Jail

The Mission of the Jefferson County Jail Division is to provide a safe and secure environment for all those detained. While providing this vital service to the community, we are committed to serving the public in a cost effective, efficient, and professional manner.

It is with due diligence that the deputies facilitate a safe and secure environment; treating all citizens, regardless of sex, race, religious beliefs, or crimes committed, with dignity and respect.

The jail offers a variety of programs for individuals to participate in, with the intent of providing a better future for them and their families upon their release, and enabling them to give back to the community.

The jail staff is committed to a high standard of excellence, maximizing all areas of law enforcement with intense training and education.  Using our resources in the most effective way possible, our training and dedication allows the jail staff to assist other divisions and provides the best quality of service possible to the community.
