Four photos of detention deputies working

The Detention Bureau's mission is to provide a safe, secure, functional and humane environment for staff and inmates, while operating professionally, respectfully, and efficiently. The Detention Bureau consists of a wide array of services and components that provide the basic care and custodial services for every person arrested. The Highlands County Sheriff's Office Detention Facility's inmate population consists of pre-trial, pre-sentenced, county and state sentenced males and females, as well as juvenile offenders who have been adjudicated as adults.
 
The Detention Bureau consists of three Divisions which provide Correctional services in one form or another.
