Garrard County does not operate a county jail. Instead, the county finds that it is economically advantageous to contract with surrounding counties for the incarceration of county prisoners. Primarily, adult county inmates are housed in either the Lincoln County Detention Center or the Boyle County Detention Center. Juvenile Inmates are transported to various juvenile facilities throughout the Commonwealth, depending upon the circumstances of the case.
While Garrard County does not operate a jail, the office of Jailer is provided for in the Constitution of Kentucky. Our Jailer is primarily responsible for transportation of inmates for court appearances and keeps full time hours at the Garrard County Courthouse.
Questions regarding individual inmates should be addressed to the facility where the inmate is housed.
