The Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility staff is responsible for overseeing a facility capable of housing a maximum of 277 inmates (201 in the main jail and 76 in the annex). The Iredell County Detention Center is rated as a Class Five facility in the state of North Carolina and houses inmates that are charged with criminal offenses from misdemeanor larceny to homicide.
