The Washington County AL Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 45 Court St
PO Box 307 Chatom, AL which is operated locally by the Washington 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. Washington County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Chatom Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the Washington County Jail. This facility houses an average of 80 inmates per day and is the detention facility, not only for the county, but for the towns of Chatom, Millry, and McIntosh. The Washington County Jail provides inmate labor for trash collection on Washington county roads, as well as assistance with projects for schools and the public library. This labor source saves taxpayers a significant amount of money each year.
