Job Profile

Jail superintendents typically oversee and direct jail operations, including supervising personnel, inmates, security, safety, food and health services, and visitation procedures. As personnel administrators, they also assign work duties and schedules for corrections officers and conduct staff performance evaluations.

In addition to their supervisory responsibilities, jail superintendents must ensure that inmates’ legal rights, health and hygiene requirements, and medical needs are met. These professionals may conduct inspections of the facility, grounds, kitchen and health service areas to ensure all legal, safety, security and control mechanisms are in place.

Another aspect of a jail superintendent’s job is acting as facility administrator, which may entail managing budgets and expenditures, overseeing work release and educational programs, maintaining records, investigating incidents and filing reports.

Jail superintendents may be required to fulfill job duties as varied as establishing effective management procedures and policies; interviewing and hiring corrections officers, administrative staff and maintenance personnel; interacting with federal, state and local agencies to coordinate inmate services; and reducing the facility’s exposure to liability.

Most jail superintendents have their own office. However, they typically move about the facility during their work day, and may spend a lot of time on their feet. Some positions may require travel. A 40-hour week is typical, but overtime could be required.
