Corrections Department

All Code Enforcement operations (residential and commercial) have been moved and reorganized under the Clayton County Corrections Department as a division of.

The director of the Clayton County Corrections Department is warden Dennis Nelson and his phone number is 770-473-5777.

The new Code Enforcement Division is under the command of Captain Sean Macdonald.

The current location at 1669 Flicker Road is still the public location for residential code enforcement.

Road of the Month

In addition to scheduled grass cutting days, once a month, a Corrections Department crew will be dispatched to one road that needs treatment and cleaning. “This is our community”, said Warden Dennis Nelson.”We want to keep it safe and clean. Help us keep Clayton County Clean.”


The Clayton County Corrections Department consists of the Clayton County Correctional Institute/Prison, the Refuse Control function, the Transportation and Development Grass-Cutting Section and all Code Enforcement operations (residential and commercial).

The consolidation occurred in 2009 in an effort to improve efficiency and eliminate duplicated resources. This gives the Corrections Department better control in overseeing the cleaning of county buildings and the upkeep of grounds and roads using inmate labor and court ordered community service workers.
