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.

Was very understanding and fast when it came to calling me back and getting my fiance out of jail. Very good system they have going. I would reccomend to EVERYONE!
Not the best- Called about a $1000 bond and answer the question. My sister has never been in trouble and they said they're not interested in bonding her out! Don't waste your time calling them
The first time I've ever needed help from this type of industry, they were absolutely the nicest and most helpful people. Seems like a heartless industry but they had nothing but heart! Hopefully I'll never have to use them again but for anyone that does need bail bonds I'd recommend them any day of the week.
