The Corrections Division of the Sheriff’s Office is responsible for housing incarcerated persons, who are awaiting trial or transfer to the State of Alabama’s Department of Corrections. The Corrections Division maintains an average population of 130 inmates. The staff assigned to the Corrections Division are committed to providing a safe and secure environment in a professional manner.
The facility has on-site medical services. Law libraries and adult educational services are available at the facility. Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office Roadside Trash Cleanup detail operates out of the facility. Non-violent, convicted persons work on this detail, cleaning up Lawrence County roadways.
The Lawrence County Detention Center also has an active work-release program for both male and female inmates. Those inmates who participate in work release have been vetted and classified as suitable candidates for the program. Those inmates qualifying for the work release programs are housed in dormitory-type facilities equipped with bunk beds. The work-release program allows sentenced defendants to go into the community in the Lawrence County area and have gainful employment with various companies and businesses who are instrumental in support of the work-release program. Work release allows inmates to earn an income while incarcerated.
Additionally, sentenced inmates serving short custodial prison terms and, who are also under a court-ordered obligation to pay court costs, fines, restitution, and child support, are able to financially contribute to those assigned debts through working. Work release allows the individual inmate to develop skills and sometimes a trade. In many instances upon their release from incarceration, inmates go on to obtain full-time employment with these participating businesses, lowering the rate of criminal recidivism.
The Lawrence County Detention Facility offers video visitation to detainees or visitors. Follow these quick and easy steps before your visit.
