About the Walker County Jail

Walker County Jail is located at 2001 2nd Avenue, Jasper, Alabama, 35501 and has a capacity of 250 inmates.

It was built in 1997 and is a medium-security Adult facility. It was originally built as a modular facility, allowing for the addition of more units if needed.

The monthly average of total bookings in Walker County Jaill is 297.

Inmates at the jail are allowed two 45-minute onsite video visits each week, and can receive money through a trust account or Money Order sent through the postal service. They can also receive mail from loved ones while incarcerated, however all mail must have the inmates' names and a return address and be subject to approval from the sheriff's department.

Money can also be sent to inmates through various methods, as well as calls from family members if they set up their phone to receive calls from the jail with EverCom at 1-800-844-6591. Remote (at-home) video visitation is allowed on Sundays for Dorms A and D from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and for all other dorms from 8:00 AM to 7:30 PM, and inmates' property can only be picked up when they are still in the jail on Saturdays from 8 AM to 11 AM or 1 PM to 3 PM. Visiting an inmate in the jail is by appointment only and follows the inmates' housing.

The jail has a free mobile app (Google Play and Apple App Store) that allows the public to receive information regarding current inmates in the facility.

The jail houses inmates with mental health issues, those awaiting trial, and those serving a sentence. It provides health services to inmates following Walker County County Health guidelines and also offers reintegration programming to male convicted criminals. The Sheriff has requested the assistance of two outside agencies to create a safer environment for inmates and staff at the jail.

In addition to its purpose as a correctional facility, Walker County Jail has also been repurposed as a cafe and event space. The cafe serves food items for $6 or under.

The contact number for the Walker County Sheriff's Department is 205-302-6464 and the fax number is 205-302-6101. The Walker County Sheriff's Office also operates a Mercy Project program which allows drug offenders to enter treatment instead of going to jail.

Recent Bookings & Arrests

How do I find out if someone has been arrested and booked into the Walker County Jail?

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Walker County Jail, call the jail’s booking line at 205-302-4874.

There may be an automated method of looking them up by their name over the phone, or you may be directed to speak to someone at the jail. Sometimes the jail staff may ask you the offender’s date of birth to ensure privacy of the offender’s status.

Keep in mind that after an arrest, the information on an offender may not be publicly available for several hours.

If you don’t want to check up on an offender by calling the jail, you can also try looking up people recently booked online.

Walker County Jail Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Walker County?

After being arrested and taken into custody, and after being read their Miranda Rights, an offender will next be transported to the local police or department or the Sheriff’s Department in Walker County for booking.

Booking is very involved and requires multiple steps in the process, however, keep in mind that most attorneys will advise that an offender remain silent and not offer any additional information about the crime they have been arrested for because anything they do say may be recorded and may very well be used against them in court.

What is the booking process like at the Walker County Jail?

Booking includes having their photo (mugshot) and fingerprints taken, as well as being asked a lot of questions about their personal history and state of mind. If it’s a serious felony, their DNA may also be taken. They will also be checked for warrants in Walker County and other Alabama and USA jurisdictions.

If the offender was arrested for a DUI offense, and has refused a breathalyzer test, they may also be forced to have blood drawn by a doctor or nurse.

It is also very likely that the offender will undergo a humiliating full body search while in the nude. This includes bending over, spreading their cheeks in the direction of an officer, and coughing. They will also be walked through a metal detector or x-ray machine, like those used at an airport.

What kind of questions are asked during booking?

The arresting jurisdiction will ask about gang affiliations, tattoos, medical conditions, prescribed medication they are taking, recreational drugs they are on or addicted to, allergies, if they are suicidal, and other relevant information that will help with determining their cell assignment and special needs.

What happens to an offender’s personal property during booking?

During the arrest and booking process an offender will also have all their personal property confiscated and held for either their release from jail, or with the offender’s approval, released to a friend or family member.

Personal property includes the clothing they are wearing, money, wallets, purses, cell phones, jewelry, body rings, earrings, watches, and even glasses if they are deemed a security risk. If they are allowed to keep their shoes or sneakers, the laces are removed.

What happens after booking?

At this point the offender will be allowed to make a free phone call to a person of their choice to notify them of their arrest, and/or arrange a bond or bail for their release.

If the offender is being detained and housed while awaiting arraignment, the Walker County Jail will provide a jail garment and slip-on shoes, a blanket, sheets, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a towel.

Often, before they are dressed in the jail outfit and brought to their housing location, they will be forced to take a shower and undergo a disinfectant treatment for body and hair lice, scabies or other pests that may be residing on their person.

How long does the Walker County Jail Booking process take?

Booking can take anywhere from an hour to 24 hours or more. It all depends on the number of people that are awaiting processing, the number of staff on duty at the time, and the behavior of the offender.

If the offender is heavily intoxicated and/or violent, the Booking Officer may decide to stick the offender in a holding cell for several hours until they become more manageable.

Inmate Money Accounts

How Do You Deposit Money for an Inmate in the Walker County Jail?

There are FOUR options for putting money on an inmate's books:

Option 1 - Dropping Money at the Jail
Bring money to the jail in person. 
Either the jail personnel will process the Inmate Account payment or you will use a Jail ATM self-serve kiosk in the lobbies that accepts cash, debit or credit cards.

Option 2 - Deposit Inmate Money Online
Walker County Jail uses Jail ATM to process all online deposits to an inmate's account. The company charges you a small fee for doing so, but the fee probably isn't as much as gas and parking would cost to take it to the jail in person.

Option 3 - Mail the Inmate Deposit to the Jail
Mailing a deposit takes more time to process than the other methods but can be done if you live too far away to bring it in person and you don't have a debit/credit card for online deposits. Never send cash. Always send a Money Order from the US Post Office, a reputable bank or Western Union. Call the Walker County Jail first as they may want you to do this online or at the jail kiosk instead.
Make the Money Order out to the inmate's name and put their Inmate ID# in memo section of the Money Order.
2001 2nd Avenue
Jasper, AL 35501


Option 4 - Make an Inmate Deposit with Jail ATM over the Phone by calling 877-810-0914
To do this you will need the inmate's offender # (inmate ID #) and full legal name.
