The Union County FL Jail is a detention center located at 50 Northwest 1st St Lake Butler, FL which is operated locally by the Union 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. Union County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Lake Butler Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Florida here.

The Union County Jail is located on the north-side of the courthouse at 50 NW 1st Street in Lake Butler. Historically, the original jail for Union County was constructed circa 1922. Around 1936, Union County constructed the brick courthouse at the present day location. By 1950, the "old jail" was dismantled and a new one was built on the site of the present day jail.

The years ahead provided for renovations as Union County grew. The current day jail is a 36 bed facility housing both convicted and non-convicted offenders, felony and misdemeanor crimes. The jail is part of the Sheriff's automated reporting system providing real-time civil and criminal court paperwork to expedite the criminal justice process. Additionally, the jail operates the laser automated fingerprint system tied to the National Crime Information Center and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The county jail participates in the automatic notification of victims of certain crimes by way of the V.I.N.E.S. network when an offender is released

The county jail booking facility also houses the Sheriffs' alcohol breath testing equipment used by deputy sheriff's as well as the Florida Highway Patrol.
