Macon County Jail

In 1989 the Law Enforcement Center was constructed and the jail is located on the second floor. When it opened it housed approximately 195 inmates. In 2001 the Bivens Whitten Juvenile Detention Center was closed and in 2006 the building was remodeled to house adult prisoners. With the remodeling the current jail now houses 425 inmates. New technology in the jail includes digital video recording of 168 cameras and video visitation. The new cameras throughout the jail ensure better security for inmates, staff and visitors..
