The Bibb County Corrections Unit currently houses over 900+ inmates. The facility’s capacity was expanded from 585 in 2007 to meet the needs of a growing City of Macon and Bibb County. We currently have over 140+ employees assigned to the Corrections Unit. The facility includes a fully operational Infirmary that is staffed by three full time nurses, two part time nurses and a part time physician. This enables us to meet many of the medical needs of our inmates within the facility. The facility also includes a fully equipped kitchen where meals are prepared for the inmates. Inmates under the supervision of Jail staff prepare the meals. Supervised inmates handle all building maintenance, laundry, cleaning, etc., in house. The Bibb County Jail incarcerates both male and female inmates 17 years of age and older. These inmates have either been charged or convicted of misdemeanors or felony crimes. Sentences on these crimes range from one year in jail to life without parole. Sentences above one year are served in other facilities run by the state and federal governments.
