As a response to COVID-19, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office has taken measures to help limit the spread of the virus. This resulted in closures of some typical services, modifications to who is allowed in all of our locations, and closures in community engagement programs. Please read on for a full list of services that have been impacted by this global pandemic. As with you all, we’re hoping to be able to get back to normal as soon as safely possible.

All of our lobbies are locked. Please call ahead if you need our services in person; for example, report copies, background checks.

Fingerprinting services are by appointment only. Please call (904) 213-6090 to schedule an appointment.

All community engagement events, including classes, are postponed.

All VIPs activities and assignments have been suspended through the month of April and will be reevaluated at that time.

Employment interviews are postponed until further notice.

Our jail staffing has daily screening upon entry into the facility, and staffing modifications are implemented to reduce jail personnel entering the facility during each seven-day work week.

All inmate programs are suspended with the exception of court-mandated Batterers Intervention.

Inmates received into the facility after arrest are screened prior to acceptance into the facility. An additional screening takes place during processing.

Inmates processed into the facility prior to and up to seven days after receipt will be held in a limited occupancy dorm for reduced opportunity for exposure/contamination. After the quarantine period inmates are then allowed to transition into general population.

Additional disinfecting of the housing units is taking place several times throughout each shift.

The jail lobby is closed to the public with limited access to bondsmen and emergencies.
