The Oglethorpe County Jail in Georgia is operated by the Sheriff, Matthew Wade, of Oglethorpe County. The Jail Captain is Eric Starr.
The jail houses a full kitchen which prepares over 400,000 meals per year, a medical facility, and a drug rehabilitation program. The correction officers work daily to assist with security, transporting inmates, visitation, mail delivery, booking, food delivery, and basic inmate care.
The mission of the Oglethorpe County Jail is to “provide a safe and secure confinement of those persons committed to the custody of the jail, and to ensure that all inmates are treated in accordance with the established laws of the United States of America and the State of Georgia,” and the Jail administration work daily to meet that mission.
The Oglethorpe County Jail accepts inmates from other law enforcement agencies on a local, state, and even federal level. The Oglethorpe County Jail frequently takes in inmates from the Lexington Police Department as they do not have their own lockup. The Oglethorpe County Jail is a medium-security facility. The facility operates on a 24 hours a day basis.
There are a handful of inmates in the facility that have already been sentenced. Inmates who are sentenced to more than two years will be sent off to state prison rather than stay here in the Oglethorpe County Jail. Majority of the inmates in the Oglethorpe County Jail are inmates who are currently waiting for their trial to start, inmates going through their trial, and inmates waiting to be sentenced. These inmates will have a sentence of fewer than two years.
Inmate information such as mail, visitation, commissary, chaplain care, and nutrition can be found on Oglethorpe County Jail’s website.
