The current jail was built in 1967, and, at one time, included living quarters for the sheriff and his family. Today, those living quarters have been converted into office and storage space for the department.

Originally, the jail was designed to house 42 inmates, but in the early-1990s, per state corrections’ standards, the facility was limited to house 22 inmates. To avoid the demands of overcrowding, the jail division currently farms its inmates out to three area county jails. Currently, the Miami County Jail processes approximately 1,000 inmates annually.


Today, the jail staff is comprised of a jail administrator, jail supervisor, nine deputy jailers and one part-time jail nurse.
