The Hillsdale County Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 165 W Fayette St Hillsdale, MI which is operated locally by the Hillsdale 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. Hillsdale County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Hillsdale Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Hillsdale County Jail houses a total of 67 inmates in general population. The holding cells are not considered general population and can house another 13 people of pre-arraignment status. Our jail staff consists of one Administrator/Captain, one shift sergeant, eight full-time jail deputies, one full-time cook and several part-time employees. Through the Michigan Department of Corrections, the Hillsdale County Jail has received the 100% Jail Compliance Award for several consecutive years and continues to be in compliance through the hard work and dedication of the corrections deputies and jail administration.

The goal of the County Corrections Division is to protect the citizens of the community by keeping those persons who are deemed a threat separated from society by the lawful process known as a specific deterrent. Other goals of the jail are to maintain a safe environment for officers and inmates. We strive to maintain the highest humane and sanitary conditions by adhering to all state and federal standards for correctional facilities.

The Corrections Division offers a wide variety of services for inmates including (but not all-inclusive) church, pastor visitations, group meetings for religious studies, mental health programs, substance abuse programs, inmate visitation, medical services, professional visitations and video arraignments. Services for the community include two work programs for community clean up and volunteer work for various services events.
