Escambia County Jail Assistance

Due to the tragic events at the Escambia County jail, The Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office is providing assistance and support to the inmates and Agencies involved.

As of 8:00 am, we have received approximately 200 female inmates from the Escambia County Jail. Since their arrival, we have provided breakfast and clean uniforms. These females are considered “Low Custody Level” inmates and have been placed in our Direct Supervision Unit. This DSU is part of our newest facility which was recently added to our existing jail. We have full medical staff this morning to conduct triage and follow up medical care.

We ask the media and the public give Escambia County and the SRSO time to work on the logistics during this tragic event. We are working to provide free telephone services for the newly arrived inmates from Escambia County so they can contact their loved ones. We will also be working with Escambia County Officials to coordinate medical, court and release dates.

Escambia County Inmates will not have visitation at this time. Our priority at this time are the basic essentials for the inmates. We will be providing additional information about our arrivals and visitation schedules on our Website.
