Alachua County is located in north central Florida. The county seat is Gainesville, home to the University of Florida. The county was founded in 1824. Newnansville was the county seat until 1854, when the railroad bypassed it.

The Alachua County Jail is located in Gainesville, and is under the oversight of the County Sheriff’s Department. The original 920-bed facility was built in 1994. Renovations in 2007 and 2009 brought the total number of beds to 1,148 housed in 314,000 square feet. The jail provides space for both men and women, and prisoners may be incarcerated in the facility for up to one year.

The address of the Alachua County Jail is 3333 NE 39th Ave., Gainesville, Florida 32609. Visits with inmates must be scheduled 24 hours in advance through the scheduling tool that may be reached through the website. There are rules and regulations for jail visits which should be reviewed online.

In order to schedule a visit, you will need to know in which pod, or section, the prisoner is housed. To find out, an inmate lookup is provided online. This tool will also allow you to see the date an inmate was booked, the charges against them, amount of bail, and their mug shot.

Friends and family may communicate by mail with inmates only by postcard. Inmates are allowed to communicate with whomever they wish by postcard or letter. There are regulations regarding mail correspondence, which are detailed on the website. Inmates can also receive communication by phone or video through Securus Technologies, which has a link on the jail webpage.

The Alachua County Jail offers a number of programs for inmates. These include educational programs, such as GED classes and life skills courses, and counseling sessions to address substance abuse issues, anger management, and domestic violence. Male inmates who are considered high risk because they are likely to commit further offenses and be reincarcerated may participate in a transition program before they are released. Female inmates may participate in a program to help train dogs one on one through Alachua County Animal Services. After the dogs graduate from the obedience training, they are offered for adoption.

To ask questions about the jail, regulations, and other issues, you may call the jail at (352) 491-4444 or reach the Security Operations Division at (352) 491-4509.

Skimming Scammers Snagged!

Earlier today, a deputy assigned to the Gainesville-Alachua County Drug Task Force stopped a vehicle on I-75. During the search that followed, they found over 100 credit cards and gift cards hidden throughout it - some of which had already been fraudulently encoded, plus 5 skimmers (used to steal your credit card information) and what appeared to be gas pump keys. Busted.

Rather than just passing through Alachua County, the driver and passenger were arrested and will instead spend time in the Sheriff’s Office Department of the Jail.

Sheriff Darnell is pleased to announce that the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, has been reaccredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc., and is also now a three time Excelsior agency award winner. Sheriff Darnell accepted the award on behalf of those high performing employees in a ceremony today in St. Augustine on Wednesday, February 21st.

What does that mean? Not only has the Sheriff’s Office been an accredited institution since 1997, meeting best-practice standards established by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, Inc., through eight different, grueling inspections, but is recognized as among the finest criminal justice agencies in the State of Florida. Excelsior Recognition is only awarded to those agencies demonstrating an exceptional commitment to the Florida accreditation process, unparalleled in the criminal justice profession.

In their citation, the Commission commended the Sheriff and law enforcement staff for, “diligence, professionalism and commitment in achieving this highest recognition among Florida’s law enforcement community.” This is a testament to the hard work performed daily at the highest level by the men and women who serve our citizens.

Deputies responded to the Kangaroo (45 SW 250th Street, Newberry) after receiving information it had just been robbed by a suspect displaying a handgun. A perimeter was set up and Gainesville Police Department assisted with a K-9 but the track was unsuccessful. Based upon a description of the robber, a suspect was quickly developed and ultimately positively identified by witnesses. A short time later the suspect was located walking on State Road 45 and taken into custody without incident.
No photo is available yet due to the early morning arrest.
