The jail houses both male and female adult prisoners with classifications ranging from minimum to medium to maximum status. Juveniles are booked at the our facility but are conditionally to a parent under authority of Probation and Parole, or are taken to Mountain View Juvenile Correctional Facility in Charleston. Each county is responsible for housing pretrial detainees and sentenced inmates who have a felony sentence of nine months or less or misdemeanor convictions of 364 days or less. State prisons house sentenced inmates with a sentence greater that the above. 

The Penobscot County Jail books approximately 6000 inmates a year. Due to overcrowding, inmates may be boarded out at any jail facility within the State. Due to security reasons, no advance notice is given. Our facility operates an inmate HUB transportation system, moving inmates for this and other facilities to common destinations.
