County Jail

One of the duties of the Sheriff is the operation of the county jail, including the safekeeping of inmates and operation of the jail commissary.  In February 2009, the Sheriff's Office moved the county jail to the new facility on Larry R. Busby Drive.  The new jail will hold up to Ninety-Six (96) inmates.  This facility allows the Sheriff's Office to not only handle the inmates from Live Oak and McMullen Counties, but allows the county to house inmates from federal and other jurisdictions.  This additional housing of inmates has brought the county an increased revenue of over $200,000 this year.
