Walton County Jail | Walton County Jail Inmate Lookup

 

Located in DeFuniak Springs, Florida, the Walton County Jail is also known as the Walton County Department of Corrections. Like most of Florida's jails, the facility is normally filled over their custodial capacity. The jail has grown, and modernized over the years, and of all of the counties in the First Judicial Circuit, Walton County, FL, has made the most progress with modernizing all judicial and law enforcement facilities, due to rising population, and popularity.

This doesn't make it much better if you or someone you love is an inmate. Like most Florida jails, the Walton County jail charges inmates for their housing, with a "subsistence fee." This is simply a fancy way of saying "tax" on a population no one cares about. Politically, it is popular; practically, the practice of finding reasons to arrest people - especially tourists - has damaged the local economy.
