The facility is situated in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. The Forrest County Jail is a medium-security jail. They currently house both male and female adult inmates. They do not house juveniles.
The Forrest County Sheriff’s Office is the agency that is responsible for maintaining and operating the Forrest County Jail.
Inmates in the facility are either waiting for their trial or they have already been sentenced. Inmates who have already been sentenced will typically carry a sentence of 2 years or less. If an inmate gets more than two years, they will be transferred to a different jail in the state of Mississippi.
The Forrest County Jail works closely with many other law enforcement agencies such as the sheriff’s department, police departments, US Marshals and the like. Not all inmates in the Forrest County Jail are residents of the Forrest County area. There are inmates that came from surrounding counties or they are federal inmates who will be appearing in court in this area.
Many of the inmates that are in the facility come right from the Hattiesburg Police Department. This police department does not have its own long-term holding cells as this facility does. However, inmates are not just from this city, but cities all throughout the county and even people from other counties are in the Forrest County Jail.
The facility offers its inmates a wide variety of programs to help prepare themselves for life on the outside. These programs are here to ensure they will not re-offend. These programs include, but not limited to:
- Substance Abuse
- Parenting & Pregnancy
- Health & Wellness
