The Butler County Jail supervises inmates in a secure environment, assists with their needs, and helps transition them to the court system, the regional jail system or back into the community.

We are committed to enhancing public safety by controlling and managing offenders in a safe, humane and cost-efficient manner consistent with sound correctional principles and constitutional standards.

This year, more than 125 men and women will move through our facility. They will interact with a well-trained staff committed to excellence. Inmates housed in Butler County Jail have many program opportunities which include Work Release, Home Incarceration, Substance Abuse Counseling, Domestic Violence Counseling, Mental Health Counseling, GED, AA, NA, Bible Study and more. Our goal is to assess an offender’s needs and provide services that assist that offender in the transition and reintegration back into the community.​​
