The Carroll County MD Detention Center is a medium-security detention center located at 100 N Court St Westminster, MD which is operated locally by the Carroll 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. Carroll County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Westminster Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Detention Center manages an Inmate Work Release Program, a Pretrial Services program, an Inmate Addiction Program, a GED program and a variety of other inmate services and programs. In 2001, the multi-purpose recreation area was converted to a temporary housing unit having twenty-two beds. The expansion provided for a fifty-bed Work Release and Trustee housing unit, eight maximum security cells and sixteen general population cells. The total square footage of the facility is 24,780 square feet.

The Warden is responsible for the daily operation of the Detention Center. All Detention Center employees report to the Warden via the chain of command, who, in turn, is responsible to the elected Sheriff, who has responsibility for the Detention Center and its operation.
