The Alcorn Co Jail is a low-security detention center located at 305 S Fulton Dr Corinth, MS which is operated locally by the Alcorn County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both.

The Alcorn County MS Jail is a County - medium detention center located at 305 South Fulton Drive in Corinth, MS. This county jail is operated locally by the Alcorn County Sheriff's Office. This correctional facility holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Alcorn County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities and the Corinth Police Department who do not have their own lock-up. There are new detainees delivered to the jail daily. Some are released after putting up bail, are released to a pretrial services caseload, are placed under supervision by a probation agency, or are released on their own recognizance with an agreement to appear in court. If there is no release, the inmate must wait here at the jail for their court appearance as a guest of the County, getting a bed and three square meals.

Trustees are inmates who work in the jail as cooks, in the laundry or in the commissary. The trustees are paid a very small amount for their time and some jail gives the trustees a few days off their sentence in exchange for their work.

When an inmate arrives in jail they are put together in a large holding cell with other inmates in the intake. While in intake they are under heightened observation. Violent and out of control inmates are segregated.

Then inmates are put into a special classification block for an observation period. During this time the jail segregates the violent, the mentally ill, the gang members, the troublemakers, and all the normal people.

After a few days, the people in classification are divided up by their risk assessment. Violent offenders and troublemakers are all together, people in work release, weekend inmates and trustees are all together, the mentally ill and suicidal are segregated, and then all the average normal people are segregated.

The Office of Sheriff is a four-year term filled through an at-large election process. Duties of the Sheriff involve two primary areas; law enforcement of the county and administrative.
