Run by the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office, The Mercer County Jail opened 30 years ago in 1989. The facility began with a capacity of approximately 300 inmates.
The Operations Division is also responsible for managing contract providers for departments of the jail such as medical, programs, commissary, and kitchen. This area also encompasses Receiving and Discharge, transport, and the Records Unit.
Inmates in the Mercer County Correction Center will have three meals a day, access to showers, have permission to use the telephone, send and receive letters from their family and friends, and have access to medical care. Inmates will also have the chance to participate in a number of services and programs.
Since 1989, this facility has maintained accreditation from the Corrections Bureau by the American Correctional Association. Presently, they are one of only two facilities in the State of New Jersey to hold this accreditation.
When you are a trusted inmate, you can have the opportunity to have a job within the facility such as working in the laundry section, kitchen, or an orderly. This job will come with a small salary and the chance to have a few days shaved off your sentence. Inmates in the facility can become a trusted inmate.
The facility does not house any juvenile inmates. The Mercer County Correction Center is a medium-security facility. The facility houses both adult female and adult male inmates.
