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.

Never experienced such racism in my life. My fiance last name is Hernandez and because of that she was refused service from this company. When I told the lady her name she immediately asked how long she had been in the country and if she was legal. She is a 37 year old white American woman who has lived in northwest Florida her whole life and was refused service over the phone simply because her last name is of Hispanic descent. After I told the lady she was American she took a little more information and then said she would call back. She called back to say she needed more proof she was from here and hung up on me. Absolutely horrible way to be in our country!!!!

This by far is the most unprofessional company I have ever dealt with in my life. They told use to meet them there at the jail at 300. We got there 9mins early they didn't show up till 330. While my family and I sat in the parking lot, mind you with a one year old. Then we get a nasty phone call at which time, they tell use they don't do buissness in the parking lot ,they told use to meet them. The lady has no couth and is very disrespectful.
