Correctional Institute

Mission Statement

The Jackson County Correctional Institution exists primarily to assist local departments and agencies in meeting their needs for a workforce by providing that workforce at a significant savings using inmate labor. The facility will aid and assist those inmates who show a desire and interest in self-improvement. This will be accomplished by allowing selected inmates to participate in educational, religious, substance abuse, Transitional Center, Fire Training, and employment counseling.

The Jackson County Correctional Institute will protect all persons who enter the facility. A safe, secure and orderly environment for all users, staff, inmates and visitors will be achieved to assure they are not subjected to physical, emotional, or psychological abuse and to minimize personal danger while in the facility. Inmate disciplinary and grievance procedures shall be followed to maintain order and resolution of grievances. Our existence is dependent on our ability to meet those needs and our ability to fulfill an obligation to the Department of Corrections by providing safe and secure housing for inmates and complying with applicable policies.
