The Claiborne County Detention Center is under the leadership of Captain Joe Dotson, serving as Jail Administrator. In addition to Lieutenant Carl Hill, the jail Division is staffed by Jailer Carolyn Coleman, Jailer Rachel Martin, Jailer Domonic Reed, Jailer Frank Curtis, Jailer Louis Buck,  Jailer Theresa Terrell and Jailer Guy Thompson.

All persons who are arrested and taken into custody are transported to the Detention Center for booking and incarceration. The Detention Center is divided into separate housing areas for male inmates and female inmates, as well as isolation and temporary holding cells. The Detention Center houses, both pre-trial detainees and post-conviction inmates, who are serving sentences or awaiting transport to the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

The Claiborne County Detention Center is a "smoke free" facility.  Inmates may have access to radios. There is a full kitchen where breakfast, lunch and dinner is prepared by ServSafe Certified Cooks. The menu is prepared by a Certified Dietitian.

Each member of the Detention Center staff is required to complete a minimum of forty hours of state approved Certified Jailer's Training Course work.
