The Montgomery County TX Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 1 Criminal Justice Dr Conroe, TX which is operated locally by the Montgomery 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. Montgomery County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Conroe Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Montgomery County Jail houses inmates for misdemeanor and felony crimes. Some inmates are awaiting trial while others have been convicted and are serving their sentences. Others have been convicted of felonies and are due to be transferred to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to serve their time.

Montgomery County has many different services and programs offered to inmates. Montgomery County TX Jail Division has a staff of 266 sworn and civilian personnel. There are five lieutenants and 16 Sergeants who provide additional supervision twenty-four hours every day of the year.


The office of Central Jail Records (CJR) works around the clock handling inmate services such as arrest packets, warrants, judgments, TDCJ and State Jail Time, and release packets. CJR is responsible for all releases including those that have posted bond, paid fines, and have "time served" their jail sentence. The office also coordinates visits from attorneys in need of consultation with their clients that are incarcerated in the MCSO jail facility and visitation for inmate family members. CJR has a close working relationship with other agencies including the County Attorney, County Clerk, District Attorney, District Clerk, and all other law enforcement agencies.


In the Classification Division of the Montgomery County Jail the officers separate misdemeanor offenders, felony offenders, and aggravated (violent) offenders. An incoming inmate's current and past charges are reviewed as well as past behavior (if known). Inmates are then housed according to their classification. An inmate may appeal his classification within ten days of the original classification. Classification is reviewed periodically and an inmate may move to a higher classification (disciplinary problems, new charges, etc.) or to a lower classification (being sentenced, in-house job performance, etc.).

Tribunals: An inmate who acquires an in-house charge will come to Tribunal within 7 business days. If the behavior that initiated the in-house process is disruptive to the orderly operation of the facility an inmate may be moved immediately to a segregation cell pending reclassification. At the Tribunal, the inmate has the opportunity to give his version of events and may call witnesses on his behalf. The Tribunal committee, consisting of three officers not involved in the original incident, decides guilt or innocence based on the officer's report, the inmate's statement, and any other information the committee finds and considers. An inmate found guilty may be sentenced to several days in disciplinary segregation with all his privileges revoked. Privileges he could lose would be visitation, telephone use (except to call his attorney), program participation (AA, church), commissary (except for pencil, legal pad, stamps and envelopes) and leisure library. An inmate could be given a probated sentence in which he retains all privileges and remains housed in general population so long as he does not receive any new in-house charges within the specified time (usually 30 days). An inmate may appeal the ruling of the Tribunal committee. His appeal must be made in writing to the Jail Captain within 10 days. The Captains ruling is final.


The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Medical Division employs nine full-time medics. The Infirmary is manned 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The Medical Department has a Medical Director/Physician who visits the Infirmary Monday thru Friday and is on call 7 days a week. Dental care is provided by a dentist that visits the jail on Fridays. Mental Health Care is available for inmates thru a liaison with Tri-County Mental Health Services. The medical department has recently experienced tremendous growth with personnel, training, and equipment, making the medical department second to none providing excellent, but cost-effective medical care for the inmates of the Montgomery County Jail.


The Chaplain's Department of the Montgomery County Jail is responsible for serving as a contact person for inmates spiritual needs. We exist to provide religious materials, services, counseling, intercession and rehabilitation for jail inmates. We also serve through daily efforts to meet the spiritual needs of the staff, inmates, and inmate families. Our ongoing duties include visiting the jail sections weekly, listening for and observing any potential problems that can be alleviated through counseling or prayer. We distribute Bibles and Christian literature to inmates and are on call 24 hours a day to deliver death or other emergency messages. We function as a liaison between inmates and family, friends, and ministers.

Montgomery County offers commissary five days a week to all its inmates. Almost anything available at a local corner store is available to the inmates. The commissary offers a wide range of foods from soups, candy bars, snack cakes, chips, summer sausage, and beverages such as Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, flavored lemonades, teas, water, and coffee. There is a variety of condiments along with hygiene articles and undergarments including boxers, panties, bras, t-shirts, and socks. The commissary is a privilege to inmates and the food items complement the three meals the inmate gets every day. The profits from the commissary are used by the facility to purchase items for inmates such as uniforms, towels, blankets, and televisions.


The laundry is delivered in the jail Monday through Friday. Uniforms and towels are delivered twice a week. Blankets, sheets, and pillow covers are also exchanged regularly. The work is performed by inmate workers under the direct supervision of a deputy.
