Jail Division

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office Jail Division consists of 17 full-time Officers. Whenever a person is arrested in Fulton County that person is brought to the Fulton County Detention Center. The current facility was opened for business in 2021. The facility was built with approximately 200 beds separated into different blocks. Prisoners held in the Detention Center range from those charged with offenses such as theft and drug related charges, to offenses of rape, burglary, and murder. Our staff is responsible for the care, custody, and safety of the inmates housed in the Detention Center. The Detention Center is self-contained. All laundry services, meal preparation, and most medical services are provided within the Detention Center.


Although most prisoners stay at the Detention Center for a short period of time, some prisoners may stay the entire time from arrest, through trial, and sentencing. Even after they are sentenced, inmates may stay in the Detention Center for an extended time due to bed space at the Indiana Department of Correction. The Fulton County Detention Center averages a daily population ranging from 100 to nearly 110.
