The Operations Division is responsible for the day to day operations of the jail. This division is tasked with the management of some the most crucial areas of the facility. This division is also required to keep the inmate population at a manageable level. This has become increasingly important in recent years due to the spike in the jail population. We have been well above capacity for the past several years and with the help of all of our staff we can make sure of the safety and security of the inmates as well as staff members. An overpopulated facility is much harder to manage which can impact officer and inmate safety which is our primary concern.
The Operations Division is also responsible for managing contract providers for things such as medical, commissary (jail store), and kitchen. This area also encompasses Receiving and Discharge, transport and our Records Unit. They also have the very important task of ensuring that we maintain our accreditation through both the ACA and NCCHC accrediting agencies.
Last year, the Operations division processed over 18,000 individuals that were arrested last year.
