The main function of the Security Force is to keep the inmate population safe and secure while being detained for court or serving a court imposed sentence. They monitor all housing unit activities, trained in all facets of inmate management, and are compliant with state standards. In essence these officers are the back bone of the Detention Division. This unit is overseen by the Security Commander Captain and is divided into 4 shifts.
The Day Squad is responsible for providing security in the Detention Center lobby and General Sessions courtroom holding cells. In addition, they provide additional manpower to maintain adequate staffing levels on each team.
