Our goal is to provide meals that comply with dietary guidelines of Federal, State, and Local laws, mandates, and requirements.  We strive to meet the average daily nutritional requirements needed for overall body maintenance and working efficiency adjusted for age, sex, and activity of our clients. This will be accomplished in a manner that ensures safe and sanitary food preparation and delivery, adequate allocation, and overall waste reduction.

The laundry detail presently uses ten inmate workers to process close to 3500 pounds of laundry a day, five days a week, washing and drying inmate clothing, linens and towels for the Men’s Jail and Public Safety Center.  The laundry has one 125-pound capacity and four 250-pound capacity washers, and two 75-pound capacity, one 125-pound capacity and two 275-pound capacity dryers.

Inmate Commissary: The commissary provides a service to the inmate population where they can purchase personal hygiene items, phone cards, recreational supplies and non-perishable food items. Revenue generated from the sale of these items goes into the Inmate Welfare Fund.
