What is the current issue in Madison County Jail?

Overcrowding is the major issue that is causing issues not only to the inmates but to authorities of Madison County Jail as well. As experts point out, even without over-population, a jail can age quickly. But if the jail is over-crowded, the damage will be all the worse. This may be because every part of the jail building will constantly be used by the inmates. It will increase the wear and tear of the building.

According to these experts, the jail is two decades old. It was in 1998 that the Criminal Justice Center was built for replacing the original jail of the Madison County. It was the federal intervention that had led to overcrowding then.

Even the Criminal Justice Center became overcrowded soon. Though the Annex, the original jail, was reopened in 2001, both the buildings are overflowing with inmates or full. In other words, the jail seems to be crumbling due to the over-strain because of constant use.

There is a little bit of good news, and that is in March, the Madison County Commission has decided to go ahead with a bond issue of $30 million for the sake of Madison County jails so expansion can be planned. Another $10 million will be made available for the county's  School System.

Madison County Jail Inmate Search

There are three different methods you can use to track down particular inmates in the Madison County Jail:

1. Madison County jail view - the first Madison County jail inmate search method is provided by the government in the state. When entering the site, you will need to fill out these identifying details to find the inmate you are searching for: first name, last name, middle name, beginning of booking date, end booking date, and type of inmate (currently held, released, etc.).

2. Madison County Jail Sheriff – the inmate inquiry site updates a table that holds information about inmates in the facility. To find the inmate you are searching for, you will need to provide their name, global subject number, booking number, booking from date, booking to date, and whether or not the person in question is currently held in Madison County jail.


3. Inmate search directory – you can use an inmate search directory, like GoLookUp, to find a certain inmate in Madison County jail. To track down the person in question, you will need to provide the directory with their name/phone number/address/email address. The system will then scan public records related to the said person, and provide you with a report that includes up to date information on their criminal data, including their booking and arrest data.
