Tioga County Jail

History of Tioga County Prison: Tioga County transferred all inmates from the old jail which was next to the courthouse, to the new facility on Shumway Hill Road in August of 1989. In August of 2004 a new addition was completed, providing a total number of approved beds to 142. Tioga County Prison provides assistance to other counties by renting bed space to other authorities

Tioga County Jail's mission is to protect the public by confining persons committed to our custody in a safe, secure facility, and to provide opportunities for inmates to acquire the skills and values necessary to become productive law-abiding citizens; while respecting the rights of crime victims.
