The Boone County Jail and Detention Staff is comprised of a Jail Administrator, one Administrative Assistant, 4 Division Sergeants, 4 Corporals, 8 full time Detention officers and two part-time employees. Jason Day, the Jail Administrator, duties consist of overseeing all functions of the Jail such as officers schedules, ordering supplies and food, arranging transport of prisoners and the safety of all inmates housed with the facility. He also oversees the training of all Detention staff. 2009 brought many changes to the Boone County Jail and Detention Center with the building of a new jail and Sheriff's Department. We moved from a 36 bed facility in downtown Harrison to a new 103 bed facility on the south edge of Bellefonte. Designed to assure the maximum safety for staff and inmates, this new jail offers state of the art technology in managing every aspect of inmate confinement. We would invite all County residents to come tour the new jail and Sheriff’s office
Visitation is held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
