Cobb County Jail Inmate Search and Data
Arrest Records, Crime Records, Court Records, Background Checks and More!
Cobb County Jail, located in the suburban county of Cobb, Georgia, is the correctional facility where arrested criminals are housed. After the jail referendum was approved by citizens, Cobb County Jail was built in 1989 on County Farm Road for a whopping $48,000,000. Since then, the road has been renamed to what is known today as County Services Parkway.
The facility in detail
At the time of its original opening in 1989, there were 864 beds in the jail. With its architecture designed in such a way that movement inside the facility for inmates would be nominal, there were a total number of four pods, and each of these pods had six blocks in addition to a recreation yard. This enabled the administration to let inmates stay in their pods for many of their activities and easily let them out directly from their pods to the yard for recreational activities without needing much staff. This original jail is often referred to as Building A.
After ten years, around the late 1990s, Cobb County Jail went through an expansion which was worth $32,000,000. This expansion, known as Building B, greatly increased the inmate capacity of the facility. As a result, it could house as many as 2,048 inmates. The original nominal movement concept where each pod has a recreation yard was also followed in the expansion plan. But a huge change was introduced – a new inmate housing type. In the original design, which is the older part of the jail, actual cell housing was used for inmates. However, in the new expansion design, dormitory housing areas are introduced.
Then, in 2010, Cobb County Jail saw its most recent expansion with the introduction of C Tower. The expansion, worth $110 million, has now increased the total bed capacity to as many as 3,077.
Cobb County Jail has a Work Deployment Center, where a total number of 384 non-violent inmates who are serving their sentences are housed. Here, work release participants information is placed. Every day, the work crews are deployed all over the county in varying departments. This helps taxpayers in saving as much as $2 million, as the inmates carry out work for positions which would need to be hired otherwise.
Work release participants are simply inmates who are housed in a facility with minimum security and are allowed to be released for work during the day. To qualify for this, inmates are required to undergo an intensive background check, and they must either be enrolled in training classes or school or be gainfully employed.
