THE OFFICE OF JAILER

Kenton County Jailer, Terry Carl and the Command Staff


The Commonwealth of Kentucky is the only state in the union that elects a County Jailer as a bi-partisan constitutional officer.

That is to say that Kentucky is the only state that the people elect their Jailer in the same fashion that they elect their Sheriff or other officials.

The constitutional duties of a Kentucky Jailer are defined within Chapters 71.00 and 446.00 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes.

All County Jailers are "Sworn State Peace Officers" as are their deputies with all rights and responsibilities connected to the power of arrest and other functions of office.
