The Edgar County Jail is located in Paris, Illinois. The Edgar County Jail is operated and managed by the Edgar County Sheriff’s Office. The facility opened its doors back in 1983 with a population of 20 inmates during that time.
The Edgar County Jail mission is to provide a safe and secure facility for both inmates and the staff. The facility is a medium security correctional facility.
Majority of the inmates that are already sentenced have sentences less than two years. The Edgar County Jail accepts inmates from surrounding municipalities and towns when there are no rooms in city jails.
The Edgar County Jail receives new inmates to the jail daily. While new inmates are coming in, there are also inmates leaving as well. Inmates are released when they post bail, placed under probation, or on their own recognizance.
While inmates are serving their time out in the Edgar County Jail, they can work throughout the jail such as laundry personnel or a kitchen staff member. In return for their hard work, they can shave off a few days from their overall sentence.
All violent and out of control inmates will be separated from the general population inmates to keep the peace inside the facility at all times.
