Dale County Jail

The Dale County Jail is located in Ozark, Alabama and is operated by the Dale County Sheriff's Department. It holds inmates who have been arrested by local county or municipal law enforcement, as it is the primary detention facility for all law enforcement agencies in Dale County.

The Dale County Jail houses inmates who have been charged and are awaiting trial, those who have been arrested on warrants, those who have been sentenced to the county jail for a misdemeanor crime, those who've been placed on hold by Alabama Probation and Parole, inmates sentenced by municipal courts in the county, people who have been placed in the jail "on hold" by other agencies, and inmates who are waiting to be transferred to their assigned Alabama Department of Corrections facility.

This facility was built in 1988 after a fire destroyed the old county jail, and it is named after former Sheriff Bryant Mixon. The jail is divided into separate cell blocks to ensure safety and security for the inmates and staff. 

The Dale County Jail has a specialized cell block that houses "high-risk" inmates based on the nature of their crimes, behavior while in jail, or a health condition that requires specialized care. It also has a 12-bed female dorm, law library, full kitchen and booking room.
