Atlantic County Jail

Atlantic County Jail was first built in 1985, with the purpose of housing approximately 350 offenders.  Through multiple expansions over the years, the Atlantic County Justice Facility is now able to house approximately 1250 inmates.  The jail houses both male and female offenders.  Additionally inmates are housed temporarily while awaiting trial, long term offenders who have been sentenced by the county, and occasionally state sentenced offenders.

When an inmate first arrives at the Atlantic County Jail, they enter the Classification Unit.  The job of the classification unit is to monitor the inmate and design a program of rehabilitation that addresses the mental and physical care of the offender, as well as ensure the safety of both the inmate and the staff.  After completing the classification process, offenders will be moved to their housing unit.  

While incarcerated at Atlantic County Jail, inmates can take advantage of the various educational and vocational programs offered.  These programs include Adult Basic Education and GED training/testing.  Vocational classes include culinary, job preparedness, and parenting/life skills courses.  Additional discharge planning and job assistance is provided at this correctional facility.
