Sheriff Jackson County



Jackson County Board members have been working diligently to determine the best, most fiscally sound, option for addressing concerns with the current jail. We are excited to share the options proposed as it will provide a safer environment for the public, staff, and inmates. Great measures have been taken to ensure the County is not overspending and the new construction is done right, while keeping future growth and needs in mind.

The program being considered is based on the concept of building infrastructure for our county. A good program of infrastructure will look forward into the future for 50-75 years and plan for needs that will make the county strong, allow it to grow, and to protect and serve the citizens of the county. We are doing this at a time of lower interest rates and at a time when our county’s present infrastructure needs updates and replacement. This gives us the advantage of particularly frugal costs, as well as the ability to plan for the future of our county for many decades to come. The proposed option will make our county safer for our citizens and while it represents a present-day cost, it will be a wise and positive investment for our future.


This website was created to serve as a resource to learn more about the project, why it is needed, what the proposed solution is, and how it will impact our community.
