The Monmouth Co Correctional is a low-security detention center located at 1 Waterworks Rd Freehold, NJ which is operated locally by the Monmouth 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. Monmouth County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Freehold Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

MCCI has an occupancy rating of about 1,325 inmates and it is among the top ten largest Correctional facilities in the nation. With its Objective Classification System for inmates, Pod style floor plans and well trained Correctional Staff, it is a safe and secure environment for all those committed to us by the courts. Inmates receive excellent health care, quality meals, and liberal time out of their cells to attend religious, educational, and social programs, all designed to assist the inmates and provide them with life skills. They spend their recreation outdoors and are provided an option to exercise indoors. They have weekly access to a Law Library, so that they may research their cases. Visitation, contact and non-contact are allowed with some limitations. They receive visits from Attorneys and Law Enforcement agencies in private interview rooms. The County also contracts with other agencies and jurisdictions to maximize the use of our bed space.

The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office provides municipal governments with an innovative, tax-saving resource through the Sheriff’s Office Inmate Labor Program. The Inmate Labor Program enables local towns to complete important, labor intensive projects at substantial cost-savings to local taxpayers. Over the past year, inmates involved in the Labor Program have worked 19,799 hours in 38 municipalities throughout the county, resulting in an estimated savings of more than $109,764 for Monmouth County taxpayers. Participation in the Inmate Labor Program is completely voluntary. Inmates enrolled in the program participate in the work projects as an alternative to spending their time in jail. Only inmates incarcerated for minor offenses, with records of good behavior may be enrolled.

In the past, work crews were sent from the Inmate Labor Program to assist Middletown Township with the restoration of Civil War-era Compton’s Cemetery. In addition to working with local municipalities, the Inmate Labor Program assisted a number of local non-profit organizations including the Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Boys and Girls Club, veterans and seniors organizations.
