The Cherokee County Detention Center was opened for employee training and orientation. Later, inmates began being housed in the jail.

Cherokee County Detention Center is a 100,355 square foot facility with a maximum inmate capacity of 72.

The goal of the Cherokee County Detention Center is to create a safe, secure and humane environment for both staff members and inmates.

Former Sheriff, architects, and jail consultants toured eight jails in Alabama. A combination of the best attributes of each jail was used in determining the layout of the Cherokee County Detention Center. The result is a non-linear, direct/indirect supervised facility. There are pods for maximum security, minimum security, a dormitory housing unit and barracks for work release inmates.

This facility houses individuals who are officially charged with a crime or waiting for trial of a crime.
