The Clare County Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 255 W Main St Harrison, MI which is operated locally by the Clare 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. Clare County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Harrison Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Corrections Division will protect citizens of Clare County by segregating the offenders from the public. The Corrections Division will ensure the safety of department personnel by promoting a safe and secure environment characterized by the mutual respect of all staff.
