County Jail

Hancock County Jail

The Hancock County Jail is the facility where any person arrested in the county (for any offense from misdemeanor to felony) is brought. While in custody, our staff is responsible for all inmates care, custody, and safety. This facility provides for inmate laundry services, meal preparation and service, and most medical and dental needs.

Although most prisoners stay only a short period, some prisoners may stay the entire time from arrest, through trial and sentencing. After sentencing, some inmates may remain at the county jail while waiting for available space at a state institution.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department is seeking to hire Correctional Officers who thrive in a

fast-paced work environment and possesses great communication skills.

A new facility for the sheriff’s department is currently under construction with fresh new furnishings

and advanced technology.

Hancock County is a great place to grow your career and to work with an existing top-notch team.
