The Crawford Co Jail is a detention center located at 21 Hortman Mill Rd Knoxville, GA which is operated locally by the Crawford 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. Crawford County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Knoxville 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.

In May 2007 Sheriff Kerry Dunaway initiated and began a work program for defendants sentenced in the various courts within the county. Inmates assigned to this program live in a special housing unit adjacent to the detention center and work up to 40 hours per week on county, city, and board of education projects. They perform skilled and general labor for the local governments which, in turn, reduces the length of their sentences. The program has met much success and the first two inmates to complete the program were hired in the private sector based on their work ethics and skills. The program is designed to accomplish exactly what the first two graduates achieved-gainful employment which may prevent them from returning to the criminal justice system.
