On January 18, 1998, the ACSO Department of the Jail became a reality when the Alachua County Board of County Commissioners, through an Interlocal Agreement, transferred the responsibility for the County Jail to the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office.
The Department of the Jail is a 1,148 bed, 314,000 square foot facility which incarcerates adult male and female offenders for up to one year. The core facility was completed in January 1994.
In 2007, two renovations were completed which added 60 additional beds to the facility (40 beds in C Zone and 20 beds in D Zone). This raised the number of beds to 980; and, with a classification factor of 15%, the optimal number of inmates to be housed was 833. In August 2009, an additional 168 beds were added, increasing the total number of beds to 1,148; and, after a classification factor of 15%, the optimum number of inmates that can be housed is 975.
The Department of the Jail is commanded by the Director who reports to the Chief Deputy. The jail is comprised of the Security Operations Division and Support Services Division.
All inmate visitors are subject to warrant checks and arrest. Individuals who are court ordered not to have contact with the inmate will not be allowed to visit. If an attempt to visit is made, that inmate’s visitation privilege will be revoked for all visitors (except legally mandated visits) during that inmate’s period of incarceration.
Visitors who become rude and/or use vulgar or abusive language while in the lobby or visitation areas will be asked to leave. Failure to leave when asked may result in arrest.
