This jail in Columbia is designed for temporary housing, so some of the amenities of a longer-term facility are not available here. People with City Court warrants, and sometimes prisoners transported from other jails awaiting court dates, will be temporary housed in the Columbia Jail. While there is not much space in the Columbia Jail, inmates do stay in single cells, and do not share a cell with other inmates.
Since it is a short-term facility, online searching is limited. The best way to locate an inmate is to call 334-696-4444, 334-696-4417. Before you call, have available the full legal name of the inmate as well as his or her date of birth.

Sending a Mail/Care Package
Before you send mail or a package, consider that the inmate might not be located at the Columbia Jail for long before they are released on bail or transferred to another location. Therefore, your mail might not have time to go through the screening process and be delivered to the inmate.
The physical address of the jail, which you can send mail to, is:
202 South Main Street, Columbia, AL, 36319
Letters will be opened and screened, and you should not send any contraband.
Inquire at the lobby of the Columbia Jail to see about sending money to an inmate. Again, since they will likely not be housed at the Columbia Jail for long, it is a bit cumbersome to send money to inmates. It generally would take a couple days to set up a commissary account for an inmate, and if they are only housed temporarily, it might take too long to get it set up.
Inmates will be able to make phone calls while they are at the Columbia Jail. They might call collect, with the charges being billed to the receiver of the phone call. Inmates at this jail cannot receive incoming calls.
You can visit inmates at this facility through non-contact through protective glass. You should first go to the Columbia Jail visitation office, which is open Tuesday and Sunday between the hours of 3:30 pm to 10 pm. Typically, male and female inmates can receive visitors on different days of the week, so you will want to confirm that with the visitation office. Prepare to dress conservatively and do not bring anything into the jail that could be considered contraband material.
