The Broome Co Jail is a detention center located at 155 Lt Vanwinkle Dr Binghamton, NY which is operated locally by the Broome 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. Broome County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Binghamton 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 New York here.

The Broome County Sheriff's Corrections Division operates a 536-bed direct supervision correctional facility in the Town of Dickinson, established in 1996 and accredited by various prestigious bodies including the NYS Commission of Correction, NYS Sheriff's Association, and the National Commission on Correctional Health Care—the second facility in New York State to achieve such recognition.

A significant expansion project in 2015, totaling $6.8 million, revamped old interior exercise space and introduced a cutting-edge medical unit. The division vigilantly monitors gang activity to foster a secure environment for staff and inmates alike.

Regular discharge planning meetings with Mental Health, BOCES, Jail Medical, and Council of Churches staff aid in successful inmate reintegration into the community. The use of double-celling, introduced in 1999, has not only curtailed the need for boarding out inmates but also generated substantial cost savings.

Collaboration with the Broome County Health Department ensures inmates receive screening and treatment for sexually transmitted and contagious diseases, promoting public health upon release. The division also serves as a training hub, offering a range of specialized courses to BCSO and neighboring agency personnel, fostering community recruitment and employment opportunities.
