Jail 1951


All persons who are arrested and taken into custody are transported to the Clark County Jail for booking and incarceration. It is our goal to house you in a safe, secure manner and provide for your basic needs while you’re in our custody.

All inmates are required to follow the rules and regulations while housed in the facility. The Clark County Jail is divided into separate housing areas depending on Classification. Classification is the process that determines the housing location of which you would be assigned. Male and female inmates are housed separately at all times.

The Clark County Jail houses both pre-trial detainees and post-conviction inmates who are serving sentences or awaiting transport to Kansas Department of Corrections. Our facility also houses inmates from surrounding counties and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
