Duval County Jail

Duval County Jail has three separate correctional facilities. The first is John E. Goode Pre-Trial Detention Facility. It is located at 500 East Adams Street, Jacksonville, FL 32202 (904-630-5759) and has an average of 3,655 inmates both male and female. The second is Montgomery Correctional Center, which is located at 4727 Lannie Road, Jacksonville, FL 32218 (904-766-5076). It is divided into three units: the Northern Unit which houses males only; the South Unit which houses females only and an annex building which can house up to 48 male inmates. The third facility is the Community Transition Center located at 451 Catherine Street, Jacksonville, FL 32202 (904-630-2856). It was built to house up to 300 male and female detainees. All in all, the average daily population of all three facilities combined is approximately 3,900.

Most detainees will be housed in the Pre-Trial Detention Facility until they are released or convicted of a crime. If they are convicted, they will then be moved to either of the two remaining detention facilities or to a state prison.

Carrying out a Duval County inmate search

The most recommended way to find an inmate in the county is calling each one of its three correctional facilities. If you are looking for pre-trial detainees, you had better contact John E. Goode Pre-Trial Detention Facility.

Those who are interested in tracing Duval County arrest records on the Internet should refer to the sheriff’s electronic inmate look up tool. The search mechanism is very simple. You can fill in the person’s name, his or her jail number or JSO ID. You will get the following details: the inmate’s full name, physical description, age, gender, booking and release date, bail information, next court date and visitation rights. Further details include the arresting agency and charge information.

You may also opt for a much broader Florida inmate search by referring to the FDC’s two electronic databases:

The second database can be used for a criminal background check as it displays a person’s history of convictions.

Visitation Rights & Rehabilitation Programs

All three facilities have individual detailed Visitation Schedules, Rules and Regulations.

Duval County Jails offer weekly Narcotics and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings, Batterers Intervention, teamwork and communication classes, Literacy Programs, Mental Health Program, parenting skills, nutrition classes and General Education Development (GED). The Inmate Work Program assigns detainees to work throughout the county and saves the taxpayers more than $1,000,000 per year.
