Our Detention Division consists of a combination of Deputy Sheriffs and Detention Officers who operate and support a modern detention facility constructed in 1991 which houses 168 inmates.  In addition to housing individuals on local charges, the Crisp County Detention Center is an approved federal housing facility, contracted to house inmates for the United States Marshals Service and the United States Bureau of Prisons.  These contracts allow for savings in operating costs which would otherwise have to be paid for from local funds.

Within the Detention Division, we have an inmate labor detail, which is made up of low-risk inmates who provide a great service to Crisp County by completing clean-up and maintenance projects, under the supervision of Deputy Sheriffs.  Additionally, inmate labor is utilized within the detention facility kitchen, laundry, and perform facility cleaning and maintenance upkeep.   During 2013, these inmates contributed more than 47,000 labor hours to Crisp County.  Figuring at minimum wage, these services saved local taxpayers an estimated $334,776. 

Inmates who volunteer for these programs and successfully complete their assignments are eligible to earn early release status.  The Detention Center also offers weekly programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), various religious services, and a General Educational Development (GED) programs for inmates who have not graduated high school.  The GED program at the Crisp County Detention Center has resulted in a total of more than 90 inmates who have graduated and received their GED Certificate to help them become a more productive citizen and get their lives back on track.
