In May of 1994, Seneca County opened its current facility.  At that time, the facility contained 62 beds.  In February of 2007, the jail was expanded with an additional 60 bed direct supervision unit and a 40 bed dorm style housing unit.

The Corrections Division is the largest division within the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, employing 46 full-time correction officers.  These officers are responsible for operating the jail, registering sex offenders, providing court security at the three Seneca County courts as well as transporting offenders to and from court.

While incarcerated here at the Seneca County jail, the offenders have the opportunity to complete their basic education by obtaining their GED if needed.  There is also opportunity for them to practice their faith.
