The Cullman Co Jail is a low-security detention center located at 1900 Beech Ave SE Cullman, AL which is operated locally by the Cullman 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. Cullman County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Cullman Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

The Detention Facility serves to house pre-trial felony defendants and those convicted of misdemeanor offenses in the county district courts. Cullman County also provides detention services for all municipalities in Cullman County and for the US Marshals Service in the Northern District of Alabama. A staff of 44 Detention Officers, a medical staff including a Physician, Nurses, 1 Medical Administrative Assistant and a Maintenance Technician are essential in detention center operations. The structure has 3 primary housing units for male inmates and 2 primary housing units for female inmates. The facility is also designed with several temporary holding cells for observation of inmates during booking procedures and monitoring in the immediate hours following their arrests.

The Cullman County Detention Center also has an active work-release program for both male and female inmates. Those inmates who participate in work release have been vetted and classified as suitable candidates for the program. Those inmates qualifying for the work release programs are housed in dormitory type facilities equipped with bunk beds. The work release program allows sentenced defendants to go into the community in the Cullman area and have gainful employment with various companies and businesses who are instrumental in support of the work release program. Work release allows inmates to earn an income while incarcerated. An inmate’s income pays for their own housing, food and clothing while incarcerated. Additionally, sentenced inmates serving short custodial prison terms and, who are also under court ordered obligation to pay court costs, fines, restitution and child support, are able to financially contribute to those assigned debts through working. Work release allows the individual inmate to develop skills and sometimes a trade. In many instances upon their release from incarceration, inmates go on to obtain full time employment with these participating businesses, lowering the rate of criminal recidivism.

Inmate Trash Detail - Inmates with the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office work year-round, weather permitting, to keep the highways of the County clean of trash and litter. Four nonviolent inmates work under the watchful eye of a Cullman County Sheriff’s Deputy and have removed tons of trash and litter such as paper, bottles, clothes, tires, tarps, etc.

The Inmate Trash Detail crew is a great program on multiple levels as it helps keep County roads clean. Inmates don’t just sit in jail, but get out and be productive and pick up trash. Finally, someone may see them on the side of the road cleaning up trash and decide the path of crime isn’t for them.
