As of May 16, 2005, The Livingston County Jail was closed due to budgetary reasons and new state regulations.

All persons arrested in Livingston County are housed at the McCracken County Jail and transported to the Livingston County Courthouse by Livingston County Jail staff.

Although there have been discussions about the construction of a new jail, no firm plans have been made.
