 Jail Commander
Douglas Herald 

Douglas Herald serves as Jail Commander at the Scott County Security Center. The Security Center is located at 111 S. 1st Street Scottsburg, In 47170.

The Scott County Security Center is staffed with 12 full time, 5 part time corrections officers along with 3 part time transport officer which transport to and from Doctor visits, court and to other correctional facilities. All correction officers of the security center are required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of certified correctional officer training through the Indiana Law Enforcement Training Board. Addtional training the correctional officers receive include CPR, First Aid, OC Spray and Taser.

Many people comment that a county Corrections officer is much the same job as  working for the Department of Corrections (DOC). This is only true in the sense of keeping inmates in custody. A DOC employee may be assigned a specific duty such as working kitchen duty, monitoring a housing unit, or staffing the control center. Our corrections officers cover everthing from intake, medical questions, assess risk and custody levels, monitor food preparation and service, monitor all inmate activities, dispense medications, check body temperatures/blood pressure/blood sugar and other information prior to making doctor calls, follow court orders on specific issues for detainees from no contact lists to mandatory urine testing, monitor suicidal persons, administer first aid and handle visitation from attorney's preachers, counselors and family/friends. It is fair to say the duties of a Correction officer at the Scott County Security Center are extremely demanding.
