Saline County is one of the largest counties in the state at almost 800 square miles. We are staffed to answer calls and care for inmates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,
Our Jail was originally designed to house 64 inmates. We work closely with Missouri State Highway Patrol, Probation & Parole and the local Conservation Agent who all have offices located in our building. Driver's tests are given in our training room every Wednesday and 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month from 9:00 - 3:30. There is a 30 minute lunch break from 11:30 to 12:00. All tests must be completed by 3:15.

THE MOST UNPOPULAR BED & BREAKFAST IN TOWN
If you find yourself with reservations here, you'd better show up. If not, you just may find yourself on a Most Wanted page. This facility opened in April 1998. We are currently capable of housing in excess of 64 inmates.
This is the first area of our facility most people see after being taken into custody. There are doors on both ends of the Sallyport allowing for patrol cars to move through quickly and efficiently to drop off their prisoners on a busy night or court days.
This is where breath tests are given to people who appear to be intoxicated. This is done before entering the booking area. All of the rooms shown on this page are monitored by cameras from Master Control by the Communications Department.
This is where people are taken next to answer questions regarding criminal history if any, vital statistics, and any special medical needs.
Every person who comes through our doors under arrest for any offense is fingerprinted and photographed. These records are kept here on file and copies of some records are forwarded to the Missouri State Highway Patrol for entry into the MULES/NCIC computer system.
After processing is finished people are placed into a holding cell such as this one to use the telephone and try to make arrangements for bond, sober up if necessary or wait for an available Jail Officer to dress them out. These rooms are also used when it is necessary to monitor an inmate on camera for safety reasons.
We currently have 8 "pods", 5 of which are equipped with a day area as seen here and 4 to 8 individual cells.
CELLS (SLEEPING QUARTERS)
Hope you like your roommate. You'll be very close sharing this room between 2 people.
OUTDOOR EXERCISE YARD
Inmates are allowed to exercise in this outdoor yard for up to one hour every weekday.
The medical room is used by our attending physician on his weekly visits to the jail. He performs routine services to inmates here. The doctor will also come out sometimes for special circumstances that can't wait until his next visit, yet do not warrant a trip to the E.R.
This is the Jail Officer desk where all pods can be watched. In addition, the control board is here which operates all of the doors and intercoms throughout the housing areas. All boards within the secured area can be over-ridden by Master Control if needed for security purposes.
This is our kitchen equipped with a walk-in cooler, walk-in freezer, 2 convection ovens, 2 standard ovens, industrial toaster, 2 microwaves, industrial dishwasher, 3 large stainless steel basin sinks, steam table and serving counter. We have 2 full time cooks and the kitchen also utilizes the help of 2 trustees at a time to prepare trays for serving. Three meals a day are served out of this kitchen, 365 days a year.
