    Crenshaw County Jail is a JOKE!! The sysytem is a worthless act of justice!! Sentence someone for a year and because they can't handle her they send her over to the mental hospital and then talked her son into gettng her out and moving to Florida (when he doesnt have a job or money to do this with). She has caused so much pain, and hurt to the ones that had her arrested, we had a fresh breath to know we would be free to live for a year just to have that taken away in 2 months time!! THANKS FOR NOTHING!!!

The prisioners are given 3 meals a day, medical treatment,clean clothes, access to tv, books and the opportunity to sit out side and enjoy some fresh air. Smoking is also permitted which is a luxury at Crenshaw Co Jail as some jails have banned smoking. A telephone is accessible for the inmates to use also pen and paper are available for correspondence.Crenshaw County Jail has experienced changes over the past few years.To include adminstrative and personel changes which have improved the standards and procedures within the facility. An institution that houses inmates has rules and regulations. Inmates and their families will not like some of the rules, regulations, adminstrative staff and or employees.If in deed you are incarcerated it is your responsibility as to why and how you arrived at such facility.

    Is Charlie West still the Sheriff? I knew him when he was an ABI agent in Montgomery. All he did was get drunk,cheat on his wife and ride around w/ porno movies in the trunk of his ABI car. Can't believe he was elected Sheriff? He wasn't even a good ABI agent.
