Detention Center

The Davidson County Sheriff's Office is responsible for the care and custody of inmates incarcerated at the Davidson County Jail.

Our goal is to provide a safe, sanitary environment for inmates, visitors and staff while maintaining security for the community. Approximately 6,000 inmates are booked into the detention facility each year. The average daily population at the jail exceeds 280 inmates.

Regardless of the reason someone is being held in the Davidson County Jail, certain services must be provided. In many ways the jail is its own city. The following is a list of some of the services and programs the jail operates.

  • Food Service
  • Healthcare Services
  • Mail Services
  • Commissary Services
  • Banking Services
  • Religious Services
  • Work Programs
