The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office operates one of the largest detention programs in the State of Tennessee,
consisting of the Montgomery County Jail and the Montgomery County Workhouse.
Montgomery County Jail
The Montgomery County Jail processes an excess of
11,000 individuals on charges ranging from civil matters to murder. These inmates are from every ethnicity, age, and
socioeconomic background. With an average daily population of nearly 500, the administrative and operational
resources required to operate the Montgomery County Jail are huge. The Court Transport Unit of the Jail Division’s
Administrative Services Section is responsible for transporting over 10,000 inmates to and from court annually.
Montgomery County Workhouse
The inmate work program allows non-violent offenders who have been sentenced for misdemeanor crimes to serve their
time productively. Up to 144 male inmates may be held at the Montgomery County Workhouse, many of whom report for
confinement Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.
Some inmates assigned to the Workhouse have the opportunity to work off a portion of their sentence by working with a
litter abatement crew. This is a funded project that allows inmates to contribute to the community during their
confinement by clearing the right-of-way and pick up litter along county roads.
