Wake County Jail

wake county jail

There are two jail locations maintained by the Wake County Sheriff’s Department: the Wake County Detention Facility and the John H. Baker, Jr. Public Safety Center. Every person that is arrested in the county, regardless of the arresting law enforcement agency, is transported to the Wake County Detention Facility, where they will learn if they will stay at Wake County Jail in Raleigh or be moved to the public safety center.

Once at the detention facility, the arrested are booked and processed. After this process is complete, inmates will receive the opportunity to make bail after their bail is set by a magistrate. Roughly one-third of the inmates at the Wake County Jail make bail immediately or are given conditions by a magistrate that allow for their release until their trial.

If you or a loved one has been arrested and taken to the Wake County Jail, call Collins Bail Bonding to make bail now. We are located about one block away from the facility, so we can get you out of jail as fast as possible.

  • Inmates are not permitted to smoke, and no tobacco products are authorized in the jails
  • Inmates¬†may exercise inside and outside their cells though no equipment is provided by the Sheriff’s Department
