The Coffee Co Jail is a detention center located at 825 Thompson Dr Douglas, GA which is operated locally by the Coffee 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. Coffee County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Douglas 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 Georgia here.

​Upon arrest, the inmate must go through the booking process, which is the same for everyone regardless of the charge. Inmates will be given the opportunity to use the telephone once the booking process is completed to contact their family, attorney, and/or bondsman. The Coffee County Jail is a smoke-free facility, and any tobacco products, lighters, or matches are strictly prohibited inside the Jail.

The Detention Division consists of approximately 67 employees. This includes a Medical Department under the supervision of Coffee Regional Medical Center. The Coffee County Jail also has a contracted food service that provides all meals to inmates. The Coffee County Jail is responsible for housing pre-trial inmates and those that are currently sentenced to the Department of Corrections. We have an average of 275-302 inmates daily. The Sheriff, Jail Administrator, and Detention Staff are responsible for the operation and control of the Jail. All staff are required to act fairly and humanely according to the laws of Georgia in maintaining the safety and security for staff members, civilians, and all inmates.

All Detention Officers are required to successfully complete the required Georgia P.O.S.T. Jail Officer Training upon employment and are required to attend training on an annual basis. The Coffee County Jail is required to maintain the fire safety codes and the department of health codes set forth by the State of Georgia.

Alternatively, setting up an account through a third-party phone company may entail high fees per minute of usage. Click here for discounts on inmate calls, especially if the communication with your inmate is frequent. It's important to remember that all phone calls are recorded, and discussing sensitive legal matters over these lines is discouraged.

Books and magazines ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. The Jail enforces this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate. You may, however, send letters and selfies to inmates with this easy-to-use app, packages starting at only $8.00.

Inmate workers are chosen based on conduct and cooperation with staff. Participation in the community service program can sometimes reduce sentences. Commissary is available weekly, with orders submitted via kiosk two days in advance. On holidays, there may be increased spending limits. Upon receiving commissary items, inmates must present their ID, check their order, and sign for it in the presence of the commissary employee. Indigent inmates are provided with all essential basic hygiene items including USPS stamps and writing materials.

All inmates have access to an on-staff Chaplain and church service programs, commissary services, television services, telephone services, mail services, and personal visitation services.

The Detention Officers work alternating 12-hour shifts that consist of two different days and 2 different night shifts. Each shift has a shift supervisor if anyone has any questions regarding the operation of the jail 24/7. Any questions regarding the operations can be directed to Captain Kim Phillips, the Jail Administrator at 912-383-6398.
