Transportation & Detention

Sheriff's Dept VehiclesTransportation Services Division
This section is responsible for the movement of individuals via court order within the State of Pennsylvania and, in fact, throughout the continental United States.

All types of defendants are transported, from those who are accused of minor offenses to the more lurid high risk cases. The importance of this work should never be underestimated. The Sheriff's Office transports defendants for district justices and local police departments, thus helping our municipalities. 

We believe this change has helped increase the efficiency of the transporting of defendants in Montgomery County.

Detention Area
This area is part of the transportation section. Its function is to temporarily detain and hold prisoners for court proceedings. The rules and procedures in this location are stringent, because even defendants accused of capital crimes are held here before trial.
