Welcome to the Franklin County Detention Complex

by Major Avery Wilson


Thank you for visiting the Detention Complex webpage. The Franklin County Detention Complex is located adjacent to the Sheriff’s Office at 285 T Kemp Road, Louisburg, NC 27549. This facility has recently undergone extensive renovations and has the capacity to house a total of 176 local, state and federal inmates.

Custodial Sentence


If you or a member of your family has received a custodial sentence, the process of being incarcerated can be a daunting experience.  On behalf of my Detention staff, I would like to assure you that regardless of the reasons for the incarceration any person detained within the detention complex will be treated fairly and professionally while being detained at the facility, and that all grievances will be addressed within a 24-hour period.


Serving on the Detention Center leadership team are Major A. Wilson, Lt. B Ayscue and Lt. D Crews. They can be contacted by calling:  919 496 3731
