*Due to social distancing guidelines and cleaning requirements of devices, the sheriff’s department has switched to off-site visitation to allow family and friends to visit their loved ones who are incarcerated in the Coffee County Jail through smart phone, tablet or computer.

*Please keep physical visits to the jail to a necessity.

“Anyone needing information regarding warrant service, booking information or ongoing investigations you can call the main number at 931-728-3591,” the department said in a Facebook post.

Anyone who needs to have a deputy dispatched to their location should contact the communications center at 931-728-9555 and, as always, call 911 with emergencies.
