Desk
In 2018, Jefferson County Jail staff completed 1,521 bookings. When local law enforcement officers make an arrest, they bring individuals into the booking area, most often through the sally port, a garage. When those arrested are booked in, they are assessed for classification and it is determined where they will be housed. Josh Skaggs (behind desk) is one of the officers who completes booking procedures. These procedures include completing paperwork, taking booking photos, collecting personal belongings and issuing inmates clothing to wear while in custody. A one-day sample pulled from the jail’s records during a recent feasibility study showed the Jefferson Couny Jail housed inmates with 13 different classifications. And within those classifications, there are inmates that cannot be housed together due to past violent or otherwise unsafe behavior.
