The Van Buren County Jail is nestled in Spencer, Tennessee. The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency behind the day to day operations at the Van Buren County Jail. All county jails in the state of Tennessee are always maintained and operated by the county sheriff.

The original Van Buren County Jail was situated in the original historic limestone courthouse in the downtown area of Spencer. Inmates were housed in this original facility from the day it opened in 1939 all the way up to 1985. It was not until 1985 when the new and improved Van Buren County Jail that you see today opened their doors.

For many years after the new facility opened their doors, Spencer was going through a rapid growth when residents flocked to the county. In order for the county to keep up with the growth of new residents, they needed to expand the facility as well. With new residents lead to more people committing crimes and being placed in the Van Buren County Jail.

It was not until 1999 when the Van Buren County Jail went under a big expansion project. This expansion project would double the size of the facility to its current capacity. As of today, the Van Buren County Jail can house up to 16 inmates.

Even today, the county is still rapidly growing and the need for another expansion is on the horizon.
