The Russell County Adult Detention Facility or Jail was originally built in 1955.  The facility has undergone several remodels and upgrades of technology.  The correctional staff consists of 6 full-time Correctional Officers, 2 part-time Correctional Officers, and 1 Jail Administrator who work 12 hour shifts and handle the jail’s population of 21 beds.  The population can exceed our capacity very quickly so often times the staff is on the road handling inmate transports to other facilities in our area.  The facility houses both male and female prisoners, along with work release inmates and D.O.C. holds that come through our doors.  The staff books in and books out inmates and the average daily population is 19 inmates.  As of July 1, 2012, the 321 inmates have been booked into the jail this year.  The jail was recently upgraded from boiler heat to central heat and air.  The staff is trained in jail operations through the Kansas Sheriff’s Association and other specialized training with includes Cell Extraction and Electronic Defense Inmate Transport systems.  Inmates are given weekly commissary, visitation, and phone access in every cell.  Meals are provided to the inmates from our own kitchen facilities by the jail staff
