Public Parking can be located off of East Spring Street on the East side of the Justice Center.
Additional public parking is located around the Putnam County Courthouse on the square, and behind the Courthouse just North of Broad Street.
As of 2022, we are in the process of expanding our jail and expanding the lower parking lot on the East side of the Justice Center.
You will need to go to the lower parking lot and around to the sally port (the two double garage doors) located on the South side of the Jail.
There you will need to press the button on the door and tell our corrections staff what you are there for and they will get the property to you or let you know when the inmate will be released.
