The Bibb County Corrections Division currently houses a total of 966 inmates. The facility’s capacity was expanded from 585 in 2007 to meet the needs of a growing City of Macon and Bibb County. We currently have a total of 148 employees assigned to the Corrections Division. The division is commanded by Major Helen Jackson (478) 621-5621, Captain Mickey Hill (478) 621-5592 and Captain Michael Scarbary (478) 621-5590.

The facility includes a fully operational Infirmary that is staffed by three full time nurses, two part time nurses and a part time physician. This enables us to meet many of the medical needs of our inmates within the facility.

The facility also includes a fully equipped kitchen where meals are prepared for the inmates. Inmates under the supervision of Jail staff prepare the meals. Supervised inmates handle all building maintenance, laundry, cleaning, etc., in house.

The Bibb County Jail incarcerates both male and female inmates 17 years of age and older. These inmates have either been charged or convicted of misdemeanors or felony crimes. Sentences on these crimes range from one year in jail to life without parole. Sentences above one year are served in other facilities run by the state and federal governments.

Our operational objective is to maintain a safe and secure environment for pretrial
detainees; to provide for inmates’ basic needs of food, clothing, shelter, mental health care
and medical care; to ensure the security of the jail from escapes, supervise inmates’
day-to-day activities, i.e., feeding, cleaning, court appearances, medical appointments,
visitations, library calls, religious services, outside recreations, GED possessions,
prepare and transport inmates to courts, provide inmates for attorneys’ and court official
visits; transport inmates to and from the various jails and prisons throughout the State;
to provide proper and current training to all officers assigned to the jail;
to provide backup to various divisions in the department when other units are not available
and to assist the community when storms and other emergencies disrupt normal day-to-day
