Jackson County Jail

The Jackson County Jail (aka the Jackson County Correctional Facility) is located in Marianna, Florida. This facility is operated by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office and houses adult men and women who have been arrested by local county or municipal law enforcement.

Some of the inmates at the Jackson County Jail have been tried and sentenced to the jail or the Florida Department of Corrections. However, most inmates have not yet been tried by the courts, so they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  

Inmate Search

To find out if your loved one is being held in Jackson County, call the jail at (850) 482-9651 or use VINE (see below). Be prepared to provide the inmate’s full name and date of birth when using the VINE website.

Florida VINE

The Florida VINE system is a service through which victims of crime can search for information regarding the custody status of their offender, and to register to receive phone calls and e-mail notifications when the offender’s custody status changes. 

This service is provided to assist Victims of Crime who have a right to know about their offender's custody status. Click this link to register.

Inmates being held for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Florida Department of Corrections (DOC), or charges from other counties will not be found by going to the VINE Link above. You will have to call the jail.

Bonding someone out of the Jackson County Jail

The method (cash/surety) and amount of money needed for bonding someone out of the Jackson County Jail depends on their charges. Most crimes, but not all crimes, are bondable offenses.

When you pay a cash bond, it is refunded to you when all court appearances have been made and the case is discharged, dismissed, or a not guilty verdict rendered. If the arrestee fails to appear or is found guilty, the money will be forfeited. 

When you use a Bail Bondsman for a surety bond, you will not get a refund. 

Personal Property

If an inmate has medication that must be dropped off, you must first call the jail and speak to the medical department to get approval. Medical personnel must be present at the jail to accept inmate medication. Medical staff are on duty seven days a week from 7:00 AM through 7:00 PM.

The only other personal items that friends and family can drop off are one pair of work boots (no steel toe) and one pair of eyeglasses.

These items will only be accepted after the inmate fills out a request and gets approval. The items may be brought to the jail Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM.
