Jail

JAIL

Fulton County Jail (FCJ), commanded by the Chief Jailer, has two divisions: Administration and Operations. The FCJ is also responsible for providing comprehensive support services which consist of food services, medical services, and facility maintenance.

The Jail Division has made continuous improvements in inmate management, building security, and delivery of medical and food services. Jail Commanders have taken time to listen to staff directly and understand the challenges faced daily. Several adjustments have been made to the training program, performance expectations, and philosophy at the jail.

The quality of services delivered and professionalism of the staff at the Fulton County Jail is an inspiration for the Sheriff’s Office. The degree of scrutiny and quantity of change endured by staff over the past year is phenomenal.

Despite challenges, the staff members have risen to every occasion to self-evaluate, adapt external professional recommendations, and improve.

JAIL ARRESTEE INFORMATION

  • INTAKE AND RELEASE

    Individuals who have been placed under arrest are first transported to the Main Jail, which is located at 901 Rice Street NW, Atlanta Georgia 30318. Upon arrival, they must complete the following steps:

    • Property Intake
    • Medical Screening
    • Fingerprinting
    • Photographing
    • Warrants Check

    While the staff at the Main Jail is dedicated to ensuring the prompt processing and release of eligible arrestees, the amount of time required to complete this process may be affected by the volume of arrestees being processed simultaneously and/or the availability of information from state and national databases.

  • FIRST APPEARANCE

    All arrestees who do not bond out of jail will routinely appear before a judge within 24 hours after arrest. If Arrested on Saturday or Sunday, they will see the judge on Monday. The judge will inform the arrestee of the charge(s) and, if appropriate, will set a bond amount.

    In misdemeanor cases, the judge may accept a guilty plea and release the arrestee on his own recognizance or time served. In felony cases, the judge may raise or lower the bond. The judge may order the inmate screened to be released on Supervised ROR. This process takes longer for the inmate to be released due to the screening process.

    Booking receives the results from first appearance around 4:00pm. Each day from the Clerk of Courts. If you are calling for bond information on a newly arrested person, please wait until the results are received.
