Detainee Property

The Jefferson County Detention Center will not retain personal property longer than 72 hours following your release/transfer. Personal property that will not be accepted based on the rules of the facility a detainee is being transferred to, should be released using a completed Property Release Form, prior to transfer.  After 72 hours following release/transfer, unclaimed property is considered abandoned and will be disposed of accordingly.  

Detention staff is not responsible for any damage to, or loss of, personal detainee property.
