With the support of the community, the Alpena County Commissioners and Sheriff's Office are building a new Jail and Sheriff's Office to replace the County's aging facilities, which were originally constructed in 1956. The new facility will be safer and more efficient, and will utilize updated correctional technology.


The project includes a new, full-service jail with 94 beds and a new Sheriff’s office. Total area is approximately 28,000 SF. The jail will include intake, visitation, indoor recreation, kitchen, laundry, vehicle sallyport and program support spaces. The Sheriff's office includes a public lobby, video visitation area, road patrol offices, interview rooms and evidence storage. The project is expected to be complete by the fall of 2020.
