The Bibb County Corrections Unit currently houses over 900 inmates. The facility’s capacity was expanded from 585 in 2007 to meet the needs of a growing City of Macon and Bibb County. We currently have over 140 employees assigned to the Corrections Unit. The facility includes a fully operational Infirmary that is staffed by three full-time nurses, two part-time nurses and a part-time physician. This enables us to meet many of the medical needs of our inmates within the facility.

The facility also includes a fully equipped kitchen where meals are prepared for the inmates. Inmates under the supervision of Jail staff prepare the meals. Supervised inmates handle all building maintenance, laundry, cleaning, etc., in-house.

Sentences on these crimes range from one year in jail to life without parole. Sentences above one year are served in other facilities run by the state and federal governments.

Our operational objective is to maintain a safe and secure environment for pretrial detainees; to provide for inmates’ basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, mental health care and medical care; to ensure the security of the jail from escapes, supervise inmates’ day-to-day activities, i.e., feeding, cleaning, court appearances, medical appointments, visitations, library calls, religious services, outside recreations, GED possessions, prepare and transport inmates to courts, provide inmates for attorneys’ and court official visits; transport inmates to and from the various jails and prisons throughout the State; to provide proper and current training to all officers assigned to the jail; to provide backup to various divisions in the department when other units are not available and to assist the community when storms and other emergencies disrupt normal day-to-day activities.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center

The Bibb County Detention Center is a Work Release and Community Service Center. The Detention Center presently has approximately 192 beds, some are assigned to the work release program while others are assigned to the community service program.

This type of program lessens the burden of the taxpayers who would have to bear the cost of what it would be to house these individuals on a full-time basis.
