Corrections Bureau

The Corrections Bureau's mission is to provide a safe, secure, functional and humane environment for staff and inmates, while operating professionally, respectfully, and efficiently. The Corrections Bureau consists of a wide array of services and components that provide the basic care and custodial services for every person arrested. The Manatee County Jail houses pre-trial, pre-sentenced, county and state sentenced males and females, as well as juvenile offenders who have been adjudicated as adults.


The Corrections Bureau consists of three Divisions, all of which provide Correctional services in one form or another.
