Morris Co Jail's basic information to help guide you through what you can do for your inmates while they are incarcerated. The facility's direct contact number is 973-631-5174

The Morris Co Jail is a low-security detention center located at 43 John St Morristown, NJ which is operated locally by the Morris 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. Morris County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Morristown Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

The Morris County Correctional Facility offers inmates a range of programs and services, many of which are in place to assist inmates in returning back to the community with the education and tools they need to improve their lives.

Serving a jail sentence or being held awaiting trial need not be wasted time for the inmate who chooses to make that time productive. Our jail programs also decrease incidents of violence and support the effective operation of the jail by constructively engaging otherwise idle inmates. These opportunities for engagement also serve as an incentive because inmate attendance is only approved for those who are currently not in disciplinary detention.

Programs offered include educational, vocational, substance abuse, and self-betterment classes. These programs provide inmates with meaningful opportunities for positive behavioral change, skill development and motivation to become self-sufficient, productive members of society upon release.

Our programs and services include…

  • new admission orientation
  • social services
  • medical and dental services
  • GED classes
  • pre-GED classes
  • English as a Second Language classes (ESL)
  • basic literacy classes
  • vocational counseling
  • individual and family counseling
  • anger management counseling
  • substance abuse counseling
  • addiction/recovery groups
  • computerized law library services
  • general library program
  • religious services/bible studies
  • discharge planning
  • community resource referral program
  • contact and non-contact visits
  • recreation and passive games/activities
