The Oneida County Correctional Facility is a medium-security detention center located at 6075 Judd Rd Oriskany, NY which is operated locally by the Oneida 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. Oneida County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Oriskany Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Oneida County Correctional Facility, formerly known as the Oneida County Jail, has existed in Oneida County for over 200 years. Over the decades the care, custody, and control of inmates in the correctional facility, and the facility itself have undergone a drastic change. The present Correction Facility has a capacity of 634 prisoners.

The County Correctional Facility provides for custody of prisoners from throughout the judicial system, who have been remanded to the custody of the Sheriff of Oneida County. Some prisoners are pre-trial; committed to jail while awaiting trial. They require transportation to and from the courts. Others are convicted criminals who are sentenced to time in the county jail, or convicted of a felony and awaiting transfer to a state or federal correctional facility. The federal government "reserves" 35 beds for federal prisoners who are being transported throughout the country or who are appearing in federal courts in the area.

Regardless of a prisoner’s status, the Oneida County Correction Officers must provide security, supervision, safety and care. State, federal, and local governments set guidelines and regulations for the management and treatment of inmates. Laws and regulations govern the admission and discharge of prisoners, proper classification and records, medical and food services, security and supervision, visitation, transportation, programs, facility maintenance, staff training, alternatives to incarceration and the prisoner’s transfer or release into the community.

The Correctional Facility of today bears little semblance to the Oneida County Jail of 50, or even 20 years ago. Modular pods and electronic doors have replaced bars and brass keys. Networked computer systems have replaced twenty-pound ledgers. Tactical teams and social workers have replaced fists and fire hoses. The only constant throughout the years has been the Correction Officer.

The Correction Facility offers many programs to inmates. The programs, both structured and non-structured, are intended to reduce idleness, encourage productivity and promote a sense of accomplishment.

The Programs Unit is charged with administration of the varied inmate programs. A Programs Officer has direct and daily contact with inmates, facility staff, the public and the staff members of programs that are sponsored by civilian organizations.
