Jail Expansion

The Bartow County Jail Expansion

The County allocated $30,000,000 for the jail expansion project, which was completed in early 2011. The expansion served to eliminate overcrowding issues in the existing facility by adding 650 beds to the existing 472, making it the largest holding facility in the state north of Cobb County. The expansion added two new pods and a minimum security building that is used as a work release area for inmates.
