The Monroe County AL Detention Center is a medium-security detention center located at 215 N Mount Pleasant Ave Monroeville, AL which is operated locally by the Monroe 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. Monroe County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Monroeville Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

A corrections officer is responsible for the custody, safety, security, and supervision of inmates in the jail. The primary duty of a correctional officer is to maintain order in the jail. Enforcement procedures include arbitrating disputes between inmates, performing disciplinary action and performing inspections. Correctional officers inspect inmates, their mail and the cells they occupy for any items that violate the rules of the facility, such as drugs or weapons.

Correctional officers may oversee people who have been arrested and are awaiting trial, or they may work in a jail where offenders found guilty have been placed. Correctional officers supervise the daily activities of inmates, ensuring that inmates obey the rules. They also keep a record of everyone admitted to or released from the facility in which they work; the population of detainees often changes.
