Intake and Release:


  • Booking staff perform many functions related to the intake of subjects committed to the Ocean County Dept of Corrections. Some of these include; review of commitment documents, performing appropriate searches, entry of all related data into the County Correction Information System, fingerprinting, photographing, property inventory, and arranging for medical screening. Once the subject is processed staff will attempt to assist the subject by providing information that may be helpful in making arrangements for release, if appropriate.

  • Staff also work closely with federal, state and local police agencies and courts and updates all Commitment Files when necessary.

  • When an inmate is to be released from Ocean County Jail, booking staff perform a thorough review of the Commitment File to make certain all matters were legally discharged before releasing the subject. If necessary, another agency may be contacted to pick up a defendant wanted in a jurisdiction outside of Ocean County.
