The Mac Sim Butler Detention Facility (MSBDF), is operated by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, and is located at 225 South McDonough Street in Montgomery.  The Detention Facility holds prisoners for the Sheriff's Office and all law enforcement agencies in Montgomery County.

The MSBDF provides for the safe, secure and constitutional confinement of those persons committed to the custody of the jail, either to await trial or upon sentence of the court, and attempts to ensure that all inmates are treated impartially and in accordance with the established laws of the United States and the State of Alabama.  There are approximately 178 Correctional Officers and 34 civilian support personnel on staff.  The facility admits approximately 5,800 inmates yearly and has an average daily population of 513 inmates.  The average daily cost per inmate is $77.00.

The Detention Facility operates a 24-hour, year round schedule. Correctional Officers provide indirect supervision from inside a control booth while Roving Correctional Officers patrol the halls and control stations to ensure the civil rights of inmates are protected, to keep negative behavior to a minimum, and to reduce tension.

Inmates may participate in education and recreation programs provided their behavior has been appropriate while at the Detention Facility.  The goal of the facility is to encourage positive behavior by providing constructive activities during incarceration in the hope inmates will lead better lives when they are released.
