About the Autauga County Metro Jail

Autauga Metro Jail opened in 2004, replacing a 34-year-old jail building. It is located behind the County Courthouse in Prattville, Alabama.

About 3,400 City and County inmates come and go from this Jail each year. At any one time, there are about 160 inmates in the Jail and 39 staff people, roughly four staff members per inmate.

Their Sheriff’s office makes a good effort to provide information about their Jail that many Corrections Departments don’t even bother with, making it easier to find out about their policies without calling.

If you need to find out if an inmate is in the Jail, for instance, you can use their Inmate Roster.

In addition to info about Visitation, Commissary purchases, reading materials, and phone calls, the Sheriff’s website also lists verified Bonding Companies and basic Bond information.

The Autauga County Sheriff’s Office maintains a Most Wanted list, as well as an OffenderWatch® listing of sex offenders.

Autauga Metro Jail has a work release program, and inmates are paid a Federal Minimum Wage for their employment. The inmate receives 80% of their earnings (the County keeps 20%), and the money earned goes towards, fines, restitution and other costs.

Like many jails, Autauga Metro has had contraband smuggling issues, although there are cameras throughout the facility and wire mesh-enforced windows. Even so, they’ve continued a policy of allowing inmates who have been in the Jail for less than seven days to receive clothing from the outside.

Inmates are allowed three white t-shirts, three pairs of white socks, and three pairs of underwear. If the inmate is female, she’s allowed three sports bras. These items have to have the inmates name on them, written in permanent ink, and they can be brought to the front desk of the Jail.

In October 2017, surveillance footage from an Alabama gas station showed a kidnapping victim escaping from the trunk of a car. Police arrested the violent kidnapper, Timothy Jabbar Wyatt, through a CrimeStoppers tip, and he was transferred to the Autauga Metro Jail.

Convicted and Sentenced Inmates

When an inmate is convicted and sentenced to a year or more, they are transferred to the Alabama State Prison System or the Federal Bureau of Prisons.  

Inmates that are convicted of a misdemeanor and/or sentenced to less than one year of a state crime serve their time in the jail. 

Illegal immigrants may be transferred into ICE custody and are then deported, however if they were convicted of a state or federal crime, they will do their time first.
