Jail Facility

The Jail division is the center of the Sheriff's Office, and our jailers are tasked with keeping the jail; a simple-sounding job, but one that carries with it a wide variety of responsibilities and the necessity of specialized training. Unlike many law enforcement agencies in our area, our jail division also handles emergency dispatch center duties in addition to fulfilling the functions of a modern corrections facility.

Jailers at the Screven County Sheriff’s Office are required by law to obtain and keep Jail Officer certification through the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council.

If you wish to bring a package for an inmate incarcerated in our jail, please check with the jailer on-duty for a list of appropriate materials. You may access a list of appropriate materials for inmates (HERE). In keeping with official county policy regarding public buildings, the Screven County Jail is a non-smoking facility.
