The Abbeville Co Jail is a detention center located at 21 Old Calhoun Falls Rd Abbeville, SC which is operated locally by the Abbeville County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Abbeville County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Abbeville Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for South Carolina here.

The Detention Center is under jurisdiction of County Sheriff and can currently house 105 adult inmates, 44 pre-sentenced, 38 sentenced, 6 maximum security, 2 special management and 15 female inmates. In addition to the Detention Center they also manage the County Prison which houses up to 38 sentenced State and County inmates who are assigned supervised work details throughout the County.

The Abbeville County Detention Center is one part of the criminal justice system serving the citizens of Abbeville County. It recognizes, to the extent consistent with the primary goal of public safety and security, the development of alternatives to incarceration (such as community service, electronic monitoring) as an integral part of the Abbeville County Detention Center’s criminal justice system. The Detention Center must also serve the needs of all user agencies and individuals, including prisoners, staff, law enforcement, the courts, attorneys, and community organizations.

The Abbeville County Detention Center will serve as the intake center for un-sentenced misdemeanor and/or felony detainees/inmates, and as an incarceration facility for sentenced offenders.
