Okaloosa County Jail

Okaloosa County is located in the Florida Panhandle and stretches from the Alabama border to the Gulf of Mexico coast. The popular tourist destinations of Destin and Fort Walton Beach are located in the county. Created in 1915 from parts of Santa Rosa and Walton counties, the name Okaloosa is a Choctaw Indian word that means “black water”. The county covers 1,082 square miles, of which 14% is water. As of the 2010 census, the population was 180,822. The county has experienced a huge increase in population since the 1930s, although it has slowed down in recent years. The county seat is Crestview, located near the center of the county.

The Okaloosa County Department of Corrections is under the oversight of the Board of County Commissioners rather than the sheriff’s office. The Department was established in 1989. The jail was originally designed to hold 124 inmates when it was built in 1963. Due to overcrowding and poor conditions, the inmates successfully sued the county in 1981. Since that time, four expansions have been built, bringing the overall capacity to 594 inmates. Despite the county’s efforts, the number of prisoners has continued to grow with the rapidly expanding population of the area, so the department still deals with seriously overcrowded facilities. There have been times that as many as 900 male and female adults and juveniles have been housed there at one time. Although the problem has eased somewhat, the county will probably be forced to expand the facility again in the near future.

The address of the jail is 1200 James Lee Blvd., Crestview, Florida 32539. In the lobby, visitors may deposit funds into an inmate’s account, use a terminal to schedule online visitation, and purchase phone cards for inmates. Only video visitation is allowed and must be scheduled at least 12 hours in advance. To inquire about a specific inmate or jail regulations, call the facility at 850-689-5690. Use the website to find a Florida inmate in this jail.

The Florida Department of Corrections operates the Okaloosa Correctional Institution at 3189 Colonel Greg Malloy Road, Crestview, Florida 32539. The facility was opened in 1983 and houses a maximum of 894 adult male inmates. For more information, contact the Institution at 850-682-0931.

Shockingly surprised they have a 5 star review I called there not knowing anything about bondsman my boyfriend called prior a lady answered to inform the lady I knew nothing about how it works and to give her additional information. She called me and was extremely rude right off the bat she told me they don't usually do boyfriend and girlfriend cosighning and I told her i understood but my boyfriend doesn't have anyone his parents are gone and he doesn't have anyone else and it seemed as if she thought i was lying? She continued to ask me questions in a rude manner and I asked her if I could speak with mr.clemmons because she's very rude and she hung up the phone on me I called back and she didn't answer, my boyfriend called her again and she lied and told him I hung up the phone on her and that I wasn't going to pick him up from jail and that I was rude. I lived in Fort Walton Beach for 25 years,
all my life and work for a great company in Destin,fl for 5 years I'm well educated woman and never in my life have I been treated with blatant disrespect. I understand bail bondsman don't care about customer service but there's a thing called human decency. I don't recommend this place at all.

School Safety Update - Shares of a Snapchat post shown below are causing concern in Okaloosa County but this has been linked to a high school in Pinellas County! We have been inundated with calls, even 9-1-1 calls, in reference to a Snapchat being shared locally that someone attempted to link to Fort Walton Beach High School. In fact, the written message was found at a school in Pinellas County and has NO local connection.
See the Tampa Bay Times article:

Update on Bruner Threat Investigation : The OCSO has concluded its investigation and found no corroborating evidence to support a credible threat in this instance. Deputies also determined the student accused of making the verbal threat, who denies the accusation, has no access to weapons.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office is investigating a report that a student at Bruner Middle School in Fort Walton Beach may have made a threat of school violence. We want to EMPHASIZE that the credibility of that information has not been determined at this time. As we have stated, the OCSO has a zero tolerance position on school threats and will provide updated information on the status of the investigation once deputies have gathered the necessary information.

A search warrant executed by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at a Destin home Wednesday led to the arrest of two suspected heroin and crack cocaine dealers.
65-year old Leroy Figures and 31-year old Jessica Rae Hinds of Destin are charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. In addition Figures is charged with Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and Hinds with Resisting an Officer with Violence as well as Felony Violation of Probation.
Deputies searched the home at 403 Azalea Drive and found a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun, ammunition, crack cocaine, heroin, and drug paraphernalia. The packaging of the drugs was indicative of distribution and deputies also found an “owe sheet” indicating debts owed and debts paid inside a box with some of the heroin.
Hinds was found hiding under a pile of blankets in a back bedroom.

Major Kudos going out to OCSO Staffer Tatiana Abernathy for her work through 100 Plus Women Who Care Emerald Coast to help Healing Paws for Warriors! Here she is with "Orion the Service Dog", or at least the representation of the real Orion, partner to Mike Arena, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Healing Paws for Warriors(HP4Ws). Orion will be with Tatiana for the next couple of months raising awareness for HP4Ws.
The ladies of 100+ Women Who Care Emerald Coast raised enough money last year to rescue a dog and sponsor a team. It takes thousands of dollars to get a team through to graduation. As a thank you, HP4Ws gave us the stuffed Orion and the ladies take turns pet sitting him. It’s finally my turn, and I am very excited. I get to talk about two organizations that are very involved in the local community.
Healing Paws for Warriors’ motto, Save a Veteran / Rescue a Dog, is achieved by “providing post 9/11 combat veterans suffering from PTSD, TBI and MST…(an) ADA certified service dog” at no cost to the veteran. Dogs are rescued from shelters, matched with a veteran and the team goes through extensive training together. Two lives are potentially saved through this process and two lives are better than none. HP4Ws also helps bring awareness to veteran suicide by educating the public and providing opportunities for veterans to connect with much needed support.
100+ Women Who Care Emerald Coast is a group of women coming together to make a difference in our community. They pool resources that will have a positive impact within Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton Counties. Local women, local effect.  In addition, the employees of the OCSO have given money to HP4Ws through their donations to Star Charity and
HP4Ws was one of the organizations that benefitted from the Emerald Coast Honor Games which OCSO Lt. Sean Lynch helped organize.
