Support Services is broken into four units: Corrections, Warrants, Communications and Animal Control/Animal Shelter.
Corrections has 10 certified correction officers. Don Bell serves as the Chief Corrections Officer. The Corrections Center is one of the largest municipal jails in the state. This "state of the art" Corrections Center can hold 44 sentenced prisoners and another 20-30 arrestees in front holding cells. Our jail also offers GED classes and Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) meetings to our inmates. Corrections currently holds misdemeanor arrestees for Spanish Fort Police Department, Baldwin County Sheriff's Office, the State Troopers, and U.S. Marshals, in addition to the arrestees Daphne Police Department brings in. Felony arrestees are transported to Baldwin County Corrections within 24 hours. All recruit corrections officers must attend an extensive Field Training Officer (FTO Program) for nine weeks.

Animal Control / Animal Shelter: 251-620-2800
The City of Daphne Dr. Albert Corte, Jr. Animal Shelter takes in about 800 to 1000 animals every year. Most have either strayed from their homes or been abandoned. About a third are adopted, rescued or reclaimed. Adopting an animal from the shelter can literally save its life, and our adoptions are relatively inexpensive. You may visit and adopt an animal during kennel hours or at special events.
