The Boone County Jail and Detention Staff is comprised of a Jail Administrator, one Assistant Jail Administrator, 4 Division Sergeants, 4 Corporals, 10 full time Detention officers and two part-time employees.

Jason Day, the Jail Administrator, duties consist of overseeing all functions of the Jail such as officers schedules, ordering supplies and food, arranging transport of prisoners and the safety of all inmates housed with the facility. He also oversees the training of all Detention staff which includes self defense, OC pepper spray, Tazer Gun certification and the B.A.C. Datamaster (Alcohol breath analyzer).  All Detention officers are required to attend a 56 hour class on Jail Standards in order to be certified to work in the facility.

The Assistant Jail Administrator coordinates all inmate transports to and from prison, collects and manages the commissary account for inmates. He compiles all information, such as Pay for Stay amounts, for District and Circuit Courts and attends court when current inmates make appearances. This position is responsible for and orders all miscellaneous and office supplies for the Jail. In absence of the Jail Administrator, this position is in charge of all jail operations and staff.

2009 brought many changes to the Boone County Jail and Detention Center with the building of a new jail and Sheriff's Department.  We moved from a 36 bed facility in downtown Harrison to a new 103 bed facility on the south edge of Bellefonte. Designed to assure the maximum safety for staff and inmates, this new jail offers state of the art technology in managing every aspect of inmate confinement.  We would invite all County residents to come tour the new jail and Sheriff’s office.
