Martin County Jail

The Martin County Jail is located on the south side of Monterey Road in Stuart, Florida. This facility is operated by the Martin County Sheriff's Office, and houses adult men and women—both misdemeanor and felony inmates—who have been arrested by local county or municipal law enforcement. 

Some of the inmates at the Martin 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.  

The Martin County Jail is a 696-bed maximum-security facility that houses inmates with criminal charges ranging from civil infractions to capital offenses. The Corrections Department maintains a safe and professional working atmosphere for staff, which ensures a safe, secure and humane living environment for inmates. 

Reduced Custody Facility

In 2001, the Reduced Custody Building was completed, which increased the overall bed capacity. Reduced Custody housing is for low custody level inmates who provide community-based labor and inmates who are sentenced to serve weekend sentences.

Direct Supervision Facility

In 2007, the Corrections Department took occupancy of the 144 bed Direct Supervision Model, which has resulted in reduced percentages of assaults, extortions and lawsuits in comparison to the traditional "linear" style of jail management. 

This model allows the deputies to directly interact with the inmates, which has proven to be instrumental in promoting positive behavior. It also provides a less stressful atmosphere, and offers program services.

Inmate Search

To find out if your loved one is being held in Martin County, call the booking unit at the jail at 772-220-7220, 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 Martin County Jail

The method (cash/surety) and amount of money needed for bonding someone out of the Martin 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.
