Christian County IL Jail

Christian County IL Jail is located in the city of Taylorville, Illinois which has a population of 11,246 (as of 2016) residents. This prison has a capacity of 56 inmates, which means this is the maximum amount of beds per facility. Christian County IL Jail began processing inmates once the original construction was completed and service started in 1975 but may have been expanded or renovated since that time, to accommodate the growing prison population. Prisoners are housed in separate areas depending on the crimes they committed, their current risk assessment, and their behavior. This facility is currently under the supervision of Sheriff Bruce A. Kettelkamp and houses male and female offenders.

If you have a family or loved one that is currently incarcerated at Christian County IL Jail, the first thing you should do is contact the prison for information on the inmate.
