Highlands County Jail

The Highlands County Jail was originally opened in 1924 and housed some 32 inmates at the time. A new jail was constructed in 1957 to accommodate 82 inmates. Staff was increased to a total of 10 employees – Correctional Officers, Dispatchers, and Deputy Sheriffs. As the county kept growing, another expansion was facilitated in 1985 – adding 60 beds to be able to house 142 inmates. More overcrowding was experienced in the 90s, and so in 1996, the jail was renovated, and its inmate capacity increased to 316. The newest addition to the detention facility increased capacity further to 512 in 2004.
