Corrections Division

The Grand Traverse County Correctional Facility is committed to the protection of the citizens of Grand Traverse County, by assuring the operational security of the facility, while providing safe, humane treatment of all persons housed within the facility, and providing opportunities for participation in programs which assist in providing skills for reentry as a citizen of this community.

As Grand Traverse County is growing, the Correctional Facility is keeping up with the pace, not just in the number of incarcerated offenders, but with state-of-the-art technology, expertise, professionalism, procedures, all of which produce a safer, cleaner and healthier facility environment, as well as creating a professional standing with the public.


Facility operations will be consistent with guidelines established by the Michigan Department of Corrections, Federal Bureau of Prisons and consideration to standards established by recognized authorities, including the ACA (American Correctional Association) and the NCCHC (National Commission on Correctional Healthcare).
