ADAMS COUNTY
SHERIFF'S OFFICE
NATCHEZ, MISSISSIPPI

Jail

Located at 306 State Street, the Adams County jail hosts an average population of 90 people per day.  With jail security being a top priority for the Sheriff’s Office, all correctional officers are required to complete 120 hours of training through the Southwest Mississippi Training Defense Academy, located on Foster Mound Road.  There, these officers are trained in self defense, CPR, first-aid, OC Spray and most officers are JPX certified.  Aside from the training officers receive at academy, they also must complete a state certified curriculum.

The Adams County Jail includes wings for both male and female inmates.  Juveniles are housed in a separate facility.  Church services are available for all inmates through our ministerial program.  Any drug, alcohol or anger management meetings or counsellings are generally court ordered.  Daily operations of the jail involve our inmates taking on the jobs of assisting food service personnel, cleaning, washing and detailing deputies’ vehicles as well as working litter detail.

The jail employs a health care provider who visits the jail 3 times a week and is on call 24/7.  Before any inmate receives or takes any medication, the health care provider must approve it before being administered.  If an inmate is on medication, a family member must bring the medication that the inmate is currently on in its original bottle.  Any medication that is out of date will not be passed along to inmates, but rather thrown away.

The Adams County Adult Detention Center now has a full-time transport deputy which transports inmates to and from any medical, court or other appointments they might have.

 Precautions!

Family & friends should be advised of the following precautions in order to avoid poor quality audio or video during Inmate Video Visitation:

  •  Use only high-speed internet connections for best quality video & audio
  • Close all other windows and applications – Other window activities take up bandwidth, and will slow down reception
  • Install anti-virus software, and clean cookies, spam, viruses, etc. from computer on a regular basis – All of this can slow down a computer
  • Find the strongest signal – PC’s and Laptop’s will get the strongest signal if the Ethernet cable is plugged directly in to device.  When using Wi-Fi, move as close as possible to the router.
  • Use headphones or ear buds when using  SmartPhones to avoid audio interference (Echo).

 Call quality for cell phones will vary depending on how strong the cellular signal is.  Check the cell phone signal strength (how many bars are indicated on the cell phone signal indicator?)
