The San Jacinto County TX Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 73 W Cedar Ave Coldspring, TX which is operated locally by the San Jacinto 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. San Jacinto County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Coldspring Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Jail Division is the main operating unit of the Detention Bureau. The San Jacinto County Jail, classified by the state as a "medium-size jail", is a 145-bed facility capable of housing any type of inmate from minor misdemeanors up to capital felonies. Typically, the County Jail is home to convicted misdemeanor defendants who are serving 1 year or less in penal time assessed by a Court. On any particular day, the count of offenders held in our Jail is around 100 persons. This includes new arrestees by the Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement in San Jacinto County, and inmates from out of county jails who need more room for their own prisoners. The out of county jails pay San Jacinto County to house their offenders and each entity has its own contract for these services. Currently, the jail is under contract with Trinity County, Tyler County, Houston County, Montgomery County, and the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe out of Woodville Texas. Typically, out of county inmates make up only 30% of the total inmate population at any time.
Under Jail Commission rules, there are required to be 1 Jailer per 48 inmates. This does not include the Jailer assigned to the Control/Security center, or the Kitchen and Laundry areas of the jail. The Sheriff's Office currently employs 1 Jail Lieutenant, 1 Jail Sergeant, 4 Jail Corporals, and 12 Jailers. Our Jailers can be civilian Jailers or Sworn Deputy Jailers.

Inmate Transportation Division
This is the mobility section of the Detention Bureau. All inmate movement is handled by the Inmate Transportation Division. Whether it is moving inmates to and from court, or transferring inmates into or out of the County Jail, our Transport Deputy is responsible for it. Due to distance, manpower, or simple cost of transportation, the County contracts with private companies who assists us with bringing inmates from far off places within the United States to our jail facility. This is managed and scheduled by the Jail Lieutenant. Our Inmate Transportation Division consists of 1 full time deputy and 2 Reserve Deputies.
