Approved County Jails

The Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) has a federal court order capacity of 2009 beds available in county jails to house state inmates. In many instances the sheriff of an approved county jail will request that a state inmate be housed at their facility.  These state inmates, often referred to as trusty or work program inmates, provide free labor to the sheriff in the form of jail support. State inmates housed in county jails also provide free labor to municipalities and counties in the form of building and property maintenance, construction, litter cleanup, and beautification projects to roads, parks and other public property.

The following is a list of approved county jails and the court ordered capacity for housing of state inmates:
