When someone you care about gets locked up, it's tough to figure out all the ins and outs of jail life. From sending mail to visiting, there are a lot of things to sort out.

The Henry Co Jail is a detention center located at 210 Forrest Heights Rd Paris, TN which is operated locally by the Henry 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. Henry County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Paris 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 Tennessee here.

The Henry County Correctional Facility, inaugurated in March 2001, initially had a capacity of 172 beds. In 2008, an expansion project overseen by the department's Maintenance Supervisor, Chris Thompson, added 32 beds, increasing the facility's capacity to 204. This expansion was accomplished primarily through the use of inmate labor under supervision, minimizing the need for external contracting.

Although the facility typically houses around 170 inmates, the population has ranged from as low as 135 to as high as 254. Food preparation and service within the facility are managed by Food Service Manager, with inmate gardens helping to offset some food costs.

The Henry County Jail offers various programs aimed at inmate rehabilitation and education. These include continuing education courses provided by the Adult Education Center, a jail Ministry program, and parenting classes conducted by the Carl Perkins Center. Additionally, the Henry County Sheriff's Office operates a Work House Program overseen by Lt. Steve Dean, providing inmates with employment opportunities where a portion of their wages goes towards paying fines and restitution.

To streamline legal procedures, the facility is equipped with video arraignment court capabilities, eliminating the need to transport inmates to and from the courthouse. Moreover, the facility has contracted the services of an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner to address inmates' medical needs through an on-site medical clinic, reducing the necessity of transporting inmates to external medical facilities such as doctor's offices and emergency rooms.
