Correctional Services, under the direct supervision of the Jail Superintendent, is responsible for the safe & secure operation of the Orleans County Jail. Located in the shadow of the historic Orleans County Courthouse in the Village of Albion, the current jail is the fourth such structure to occupy that site since the county was established in 1824. The facility is approved to house 82 inmates and quite often exceeds that capacity with variances issued by the NYS Commission of Correction. The jail serves as a detention center for pre-trial felony or misdemeanor defendants & those convicted of misdemeanors or violations in county or town courts.
The Jail Superintendent currently has a command staff of 3 Lieutenants and 3 Sergeants. They supervise 26 full-time and 10 part-time Correction Officers. There are also 7 civilian employees. In addition to their normal duties, Correction Officers are also responsible for inmate transports to & from county and/or town courts. They also handle transports to & from medical and/or dental appointments, and they deliver convicted state-ready inmates to the NYS Department of Corrections & Community Supervision (DOCCS).
The jail occasionally houses inmates from other counties or for Immigration & Customs Enforcement, the United States Border Patrol, or the United States Marshal's Service.
The Orleans County Jail operates within the standards & guidelines established by the New York State Commission of Correction. Jail sub-categories can be accessed on the left side of this page.
