The Monroe County Jail is in Union, West Virginia. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency that is responsible for operating and managing the Monroe County Jail.
The Monroe County Jail is a medium-security detention center. The facility holds inmates who are awaiting trial, waiting to be sentenced, or already have been sentenced. Inmates who have already been sentenced will carry a sentence for less than two years.
The Monroe County Jail will take in inmates from the surrounding municipalities, towns, and even the Union Police Department. The Union Police Department does not have their own longer-term lockup area, so they use the Monroe County Jail for the individuals who they arrest.
The Monroe County Jail accepts new inmates to the facility on a daily basis. Some inmates will be released due to them finishing their sentence, posting bail, or being placed on probation, or just being released on their own as an agreement with appearing for their court date.
Inmates can build up their trust in the facility. Trust inmates can be trusted with jobs such as laundry personnel, commissary, cooks, and orderlies. These jobs will pay a small salary and they can even shave off a few days from their sentences as well.
