If a county inmate is on medication, they should bring their medicine with them or have a family member bring it to the Jail in the original bottle. Medicine is dispensed by the nurse as ordered by the doctor.

Work Release: Some inmates are allowed to work in our Joint County Work Center. These inmates go out and work. These inmates are used to collect trash along our state roads. Sheriff Moore started inmates collecting trash on all out-county roads and our inmates also work do repair work on the local churches, all they do is buy the materials and we do the work. This is one of the Sheriff's ways of giving back to the community.
