Was my great grandfather in the county jail?

I believe I have found my great grandfather in the 1940 census and the enumeration district is the Oklahoma county jail. Does this mean he was an inmate? Family members tell me he was in law enforcement at one time. Could this just be his residence? It also may be someone else with the same initials but there is no other match that I have found in the census so far. He is James Henry Pearson born in 14 FEB 1879 in Robertson, Texas.

The census record in question is http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=1940usfedcen&a...
