Baldwin County Corrections Center

The Baldwin County Sheriff's office is responsible for maintaining the Baldwin County Sheriff's Corrections Center, where a maximum of 700 inmates can be housed.

The Corrections Center, formerly known as the County Jail, has been located on the same property in Bay Minette, Alabama for 200 years.  

The majority of inmates housed in the facility are held as pre-trial detainees who are awaiting actions by the Court. A much smaller number are either inmates serving a sentence in the facility, inmates housed from other jurisdictions, or inmates sentenced to state prison who are awaiting transportation to their assigned Alabama Department of Corrections location.
