The Grand Traverse County Correctional Facility is committed to the protection of the citizens of Grand Traverse County, by assuring the operational security of the facility, while providing safe, humane treatment of all persons housed within the facility, and providing opportunities for participation in programs which assist in providing skills for reentry as a citizen of this community.

As Grand Traverse County is growing, the Correctional Facility is keeping up with the pace, not just in the number of incarcerated offenders, but with state-of-the-art technology, expertise, professionalism, procedures, all of which produce a safer, cleaner and healthier facility environment, as well as creating a professional standing with the public.


Facility operations will be consistent with guidelines established by the State of Michigan, Federal Bureau of Prisons and consideration to standards established by recognized authorities, corrections organizations including the ACA (American Correctional Association) and the NCCHC (National Correctional Healthcare).

Corrections Services

In addition to the basic correctional functions of custody, security, and supervision of the daily activities of an inmate population, Corrections staff are specialized in Court Services, providing bailiffs and security to all Grand Traverse County Courts. Jail staff facilitate all long distance state transports, delivering sentenced offenders to the Michigan Department of Corrections, picking up subjects arrested on local warrants or court orders.

Jail Records

Jail records provide a wealth of information shared with law enforcement agencies, accessible through computer databases nationwide. Additionally, local, state and national statistics are partially supported by information obtained through the intake process.
