It was in service until June of 2014 when the "New Jail" opened it's doors at it's current location in Tell City, Indiana.

The newly constructed Sheriff's Office and Detention Center has a bed count of one-hundred and thirty-six (136). With it's increased size, security minded floor-plan, and implementation of new technologies, this new facility has provided a safer, more secure, Constitutionally sound pre-trial detention area for the community.
