The Chautauqua Co Jail is a detention center located at 15 E Chautauqua Ave Mayville, NY which is operated locally by the Chautauqua 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. Chautauqua County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Mayville 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 Chautauqua County Jail, overseen by Sheriff Joseph A Gerace, operates as a division of the Sheriff’s Office, catering to various responsibilities outlined in the New York State Constitution. The Sheriff, elected by county voters, holds direct responsibility for jail operations, county court security, and civil matters.

To efficiently manage the custody and care of inmates, the Sheriff appoints a Warden as the facility's chief administrative officer. Assisted by a management team of three and six shift supervisors, the Warden supervises the daily operations of the jail.

The Chautauqua County Jail accommodates pre-sentence detainees awaiting court proceedings, convicted inmates serving jail sentences, as well as NYS Parole and County Probation Violators. Additionally, it houses individuals accused of civil offenses, such as failure to pay child support.
