New Jersey County Jails

The New Jersey County Jail System (NJCJS) is collectively operated by each of the state's 21 counties. Each county is responsible for the safe, secure detention of individuals committed to their custody who have either been charged with a crime and are pending case disposition or who have been convicted of a crime and sentenced to a period of incarceration of one year or less. On any given day the NJCJS has in its custody approximately 15,000 inmates. There is at least one correctional facility (a.k.a. jail) in each county, with a total of 22 county correctional facilities in New Jersey. In thirteen counties, operation of the county jail is a responsibility and function of a County Department of Corrections, while in the remaining eight counties it is a responsibility and function of the Sheriff's Office. Every county correctional facility operates under the direction and management of a Warden, Director, or Undersheriff.

In addition to the 22 county correctional facilities, there are three privately owned and operated residential reentry facilities in New Jersey that house county inmates on a contract basis.
