In 1921, the Harlan County Sheriff’s Office was formed by a legislative act. The original Harlan County Jail opened up at the beginning of 1924. During this time, the jail could only house up to 32 inmates at any given time.

It was not until 1957 when the new Harlan County Jail was built. This facility was built and designed to house up to 82 inmates at any given time. During this time, the Harlan County Sheriff’s Office expanded as well. The Harlan County Sheriff’s Office expanded to 10 employees. The employees include correctional officers, deputy sheriff’s, along with dispatchers.

With the increasing growth the county was seeing, again in 1985, the Harlan County Jail has expanded once again. This expansion added an additional 60 beds to the already 82 beds they currently had. This brought the total of inmates the Harlan County Jail can hold is 142.

In the 1990s, the Highland County Jail saw overcrowding. This required the Highland County Jail to seek out more inmate housing to accommodate the increasing inmate population. Then in 1996, the Highland County Jail went under yet again another renovation, which increased the Highland County Jail inmate population up to 316. However, the most recent addition happened in 2004, which now brings the inmate population total up to 512.

The Harlan County Resident population in 1974 was around 39,000. In 1998, the resident population was up to over 80,000. Most recently in 2008, the resident population of Highland County is now over 100,000.

With the growing number of residents in Highland County means the ever so growing number of service calls. Back in 1974, there were a little under 10,000 service calls a year. Now with the population rising, in 2008, there were over 121,000 service calls a year.
