The current Tallapoosa County jail was built in 1991. The first administrator of that jail was David McMichael. It has video conferencing capabilities to help with safety and communication. It has 23 full-time employees and one part-time.

In the 1930s, the Sharecroppers' Union (SCU) and the government of Tallapoosa County were at odds. The SCU was organizing the sharecroppers so they could have better lives. The main problem was that the SCU had connections to communists, which caused issues with many. The Sheriff arrested many sharecroppers for debts that were real and trumped up. When the SCU held meetings, the Sheriff's Department started raiding them. Several meetings ended with SCU members being arrested. One such incident led to several members wounded and 17 arrested.

One arrest was Ned Cobb, a founder of the SCU. He helped a friend when the Sheriff came to collect on a debt. There was a shoot out in which he was wounded and arrested. He was convicted and sentenced to 13 years. He could have given up his farm for parole, but he refused. He came back to his farm and continued his cause.

On May 25, 1986, Deputy Sheriff Leonard Brand and another deputy responded to a call about a domestic disturbance. Both deputies were shot. Brand died. The man killed himself later that day.
