Carroll County is compensated by the State of Georgia DOC at the rate of about $22 per day per inmate to feed, clothe and house them in Carroll County. There are currently more than 246 State inmates and inmates who have been sentenced through the State Court at the Carroll County Prison facility on Horsley Mill Road. Some of the inmates are used in guarded crews to provide labor or maintenance at various county buildings or job sites, like the landfill, court house, animal shelter, county parks, police station, paving and patching county roads and along roadsides.

Citizens, county employees and family members of Carroll County are strongly cautioned by the Warden about interacting with crew members performing services at these various sites within the community. Inmates are identifiable by their Orange or White shirts and white pants with a blue strip running down the legs of the pants. Personal conversation, physical contact, providing private, unauthorized transportation, transacting/conducting business with an inmate, and/or being alone with an inmate is discouraged. The public is also directed to not provide members of inmate crews with any contraband, for example, cell phones or access to cell or regular phones, magazines or pictures, money, food or drink, cigarettes, alcohol, drugs or any other items.

If a citizen sees an unsupervised inmate at large in the community, who is off of county property and unaccompanied by a uniformed Carroll County Prison Corrections Officer, call 770-830-5905 or 911 immediately and report the incident and location of the inmate to Prison Facility Staff or Law Enforcement Officials.
