Darlington County SC Detention Center
The Detention Division is composed of 50+ employees, which includes administration, command staff, and officers. In 1999, we moved into our new facility, which houses 224 inmates, with an additional holding area capacity of 64. The facility houses both male and female inmates. This state of the art facility has been a model in structure and operations throughout the state. It is a direct supervision facility. Meaning, it is a totally self-sufficient operation consisting of housing, food service, and laundry facilities that maintain a high level of service on a daily basis. Ninety-five to ninety-eight percent of the housed inmates are pre-trial or persons waiting to go to court to have their cases heard by a judge. The other 2% - 5% are persons serving a 90-day or less sentence or, are waiting to be transferred to another facility. Additionally, we are a contracted holding facility for the United States Marshall Service for Federal inmates awaiting trial in the United States Federal Court System.
