The Corrections Bureau of the Sheriff’s Office is comprised of four (4) separate Divisions: Security, Administration, court Security, and Facilities Management. Using a combination of modern technology and employee skills, the entire Corrections Bureau team works in a collaborative effort to ensure the overall operation of the Corrections Bureau is run as efficiently as possible.

The Security Division is responsible for the 24 hour a day security of the Sheriff’s Complex. Each security shift is supervised by one lieutenant who, in turn, supervises deputies and sergeants assigned to booking and housing.

The Administration Division of the Corrections Bureau oversees all  functions related to the effective operation of the detention center. These operations include: victim information, medical, inmate property, inmate programs (educational and religious), fire/sanitation, criminal registration, inmate commissary, classification, and outside work squads.

The Court Security Division is supervised by one lieutenant and is responsible for overall security at the Baker County Courthouse. Additionally, the Court Security Division is responsible for civil process service, warrants, and inmate transportation.

The Facilities Management Division is responsible for all aspects of the Baker county Sheriff’s Office Complex including: facility and ground maintenance, food services for staff inmates, warehouse inventory, and general custodial duties.
