Detention Center

The Mississippi County Jail is under the leadership and direction of a Jail Administrator, responsible for the entire jail operation.

 

The Assistant Jail Administrator is responsible for in house medical billing, jail records, detainee mail, and general office duties.

 

The Chief Jailer maintains security in the jail, investigates detainee grievances, and makes sure the jail is adequately staffed.

 

The Booking Officer is responsible for intake, fingerprinting, and photographing all detainees. Nights and weekends are covered by jailers that are crossed trained in booking.

 

Kitchen Supervisors maintain the kitchen, order the food, and serve an average of 158 detainees 3 meals a day with the help of trustees.

 

We have contracted medical services who are responsible for all nurse calls and medications. We also have a doctor that makes weekly visits.

 

The Maintenance Supervisor keeps the Mississippi County Jail operational.

 

Fully staffed we have four sergeants and twenty jailers. They work four, 12 hour shifts. They cover all jail duties, and also do medication and booking after regular hours and on weekends. All jailers are required to have a 40 hour Jail Standards course.

 

The high count for the jail in 2018 was 162, low count 106, and our average count was 130. The detainees at the Mississippi County Jail have access to TV's, phones, church service, visitation, law library, and yard call.

 

We operate within the guidelines set by Jail Standards, and they routinely inspect our facility.
