Decatur County is compensated by the State of Georgia DOC at the rate of about $20 per day per inmate¬†to feed, clothe and house them in Decatur County. There are currently¬†more than 200 State inmates and inmates who have been sentenced through Decatur County State Court¬†at¬†the Decatur County¬†Prison¬†facility on Airport Road.¬†Some of¬†the inmates¬†are used in guarded crews to provide labor or maintenance¬†at various county¬†buildings or job sites, like the landfill and along roadsides.
Citizens, county employees¬†and family members of Decatur County¬†Prison¬†inmates are strongly cautioned by the Warden about interacting with crew members performing services at these various sites within the community. Inmates¬†are identifiable by their orange shirts and white pants with a black strip running down the legs of the pants. Personal conversation, physical contact, providing private, unauthorized transportation, transacting/conducting business with an inmate,¬†and/or being alone with an inmate is discouraged. The public is also directed to not provide¬†members of¬†inmate crews with any contraband, for example, cell phones or access to cell or regular phones, magazines or pictures, money, food or drink, cigarettes, alcohol, drugs¬†or any other items.
If a citizen sees an unsupervised inmate at large in the community, who is off of county property and unaccompanied by a blue uniformed Decatur County Prison¬†guard, call 911 immediately and report the incident and location of the inmate¬†to Law Enforcement officials.
