Department Functions

The Detention Center is a primary resource for the local criminal justice system. It is used to address the need for detention at various points in the criminal justice process.


Detention Centers typically serve multiple law enforcement agencies in the community including the local police, sheriff, state police, conservation officers, and federal authorities. Detention Centers also serve prosecutors, the courts, and probation and parole agencies. 


Bamberg County Detention Center houses adult male and female offenders only.
