Bibb County GA Jail basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmate while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number: 478-621-5666

The Bibb County GA Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 668 Oglethorpe St Macon, GA which is operated locally by the Bibb 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. Bibb County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Macon Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

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.

The Bibb County Jail incarcerates both male and female inmates 17 years of age and older. These inmates have either been charged or convicted of misdemeanors or felony crimes. 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. The purpose of the work release program is to allow the detainees to continue to work in the private sector in order to pay off fines and restitution ordered by the courts, it also allows them the opportunity to continue to support their families. 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.

The Detention Center is staffed by a Major, Captain, Senior Lieutenant, Junior Lieutenant, Sergeant, twenty-one Deputies and four Bailiffs.
