Henry County Sheriff's Office Corrections Division

 

(309) 937-3940

 

The Henry County Sheriff's Office Corrections Division is responsible for keeping in safe and secure custody all criminal suspects and persons convicted of crimes in Henry County who receive jail sentences. A new Jail and Court Services Courthouse Addition was completed in 1999.

 

The Corrections Division consists of Correctional Officers organized under a Jail Administrator who is appointed by the Sheriff. There is also an Assistant Jail Administrator and four Corporals. In addition to local inmates, the jail staff also supervises inmates from other agencies who are here for temporary housing. Housing of outside inmates is become a major source of revenue for Henry County.

Correctional Officers' duties include supervision of jail inmates, security of the jail facility itself, transportation of inmates to and from court appearances, medical offices, and other appointments, and insuring the safety of both inmates and staff. Correctional Officers also are available to assist the public and can file reports on minor incidents such as vehicle/deer accidents, minor thefts, and telephone harassment.

 

General Rules Regarding Inmates

All persons incarcerated at the Henry County Jail receive a copy of the Inmate Rules and Regulations. Inmates are responsible for adhering to the rules and regulations and failure to do so can result in disciplinary action. The full Inmate Rules and Regulations is too extensive to reproduce here. What follows is general in nature.
