District Confinement Facility
The Burke-Catawba District Confinement Facility is housed in
the same building as the Sheriff's Office however it is a separate entity
from the Sheriff’s Office. It is governed by a Board of Directors
and the Board designates an administrator to oversee the facility's
day-to-day operation. Burke County mainly uses this facility to house
females, juveniles aged 16-17, "hold until sober" intoxicated
persons, and certain high control inmates due to the availability of two
padded cells. It is also utilized when the downtown jail exceeds its
capacity of inmates.
For more information please visit their website or contact
the facility directly at (828) 764-9583.
