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.

Sheriff Darnell names Criminal Justice Technician Nanci Kelly as Employee of the Month for April 2018.

On April 3, 2018, Nanci received two calls from the same number on the main ASO switchboard. No one spoke during either of the calls. Background noise made Nanci suspicious and working with the Combined Communications Center, a location was identified where the call might be originating from. Personnel responded to that location and discovered a person needing medical attention.

Congratulations Nanci and thank you for following through and making sure this citizen received care!
