2011 Jail Staff

The Prentiss County Jail is is located at 1901-B East Chambers Drive in Booneville Mississippi.  It was constructed and officially opened for use in 1996.

Telephone: 662-728-2016

The staff at the Prentiss County Jail is supervised by Jail Administrator/Investigator Brian Taylor and Deputy Jail Administrator Dewayne Mink.  Both Taylor and Mink are certified Investigators and Deputy Sheriffs.

The jail has the capacity to house approximately 70 inmate including county inmates, state inmates.

We also are very fortunate to have a Joint State/County Inmate Work Center that houses as many as 18 State Inmates that are low risk inmates.  These inmates eligibility is determined by several factors;  they must have two (2) years or less remaining on their sentence and can't be convicted of a violent crime or sex crime.

These working inmates provide free labor to Prentiss County and are used for custodial work at the Prentiss County Courthouse, work at the Agricultural Center, custodial work and and maintenance at the Prentiss County Justice Center.  The Jail operates it's own kitchen utilizing Inmate labor to do the cooking.  Providing meals onsite to the inmates thru the kitchen saves the county four ($4) dollars a day per inmate.
