About the Craighead County Detention Center

The Craighead County Detention Center (CCDC), built in 1989 and replacing the old jail that was constructed in 1939, is a medium-security correctional facility located at 901 Willett Road, Jonesboro, AR 72401. The old jail, an Art-Deco style yellow brick structure, was built in 1939 and connected to the Craighead County Courthouse.

It has a capacity of 381 adults, 62 juveniles, and a total of 68 employees. Inmates are separated by felon status male, misdemeanor status male, and special needs male. Visitation hours at the CCDC are 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, and 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Thursday for female inmates. Inmates are allowed two 45-minute onsite video visits each week which must be scheduled in advance. Visiting hours online are Monday-Friday, 1:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m. The facility has been subject to allegations of black mold, flooding, and unsanitary eating and sleeping conditions. Reports from state inspections suggest overcrowding is a common issue across Arkansas jails, and a pretrial detainee was subjected to inhumane conditions of confinement, and a violent attack on a detention officer was captured on jail cameras. Inmates are provided with medical care, meals, and access to recreational activities. The CCDC's phone number is 870-933-4556, with an automated service line at 870-933-7719 and an inmate search line at 870-933-4552.

Mail can be received every day and is processed and passed to the inmates quickly, however the jail uses a digital service to avoid contraband entering the facility. Friends and family of inmates in the Craighead County Detention Center can arrange to visit inmates by video, both at the jail and remotely from home. They can also send them money and buy them commissary online, and set up a phone account that allows the inmates to call them during the day and evening seven days a week.

All the information on these inmate services can be found in the sections below.  If you still have questions, you can phone the jail 24 hours a day by calling 870-933-4556.

Recent Bookings & Arrests

How do I find out if someone has been arrested and booked into the Craighead County Detention Center?

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Craighead County Detention Center, call the jail’s booking line at 870-933-4556.

There may be an automated method of looking them up by their name over the phone, or you may be directed to speak to someone at the jail. Sometimes the jail staff may ask you the offender’s date of birth to ensure privacy of the offender’s status.

Keep in mind that after an arrest, the information on an offender may not be publicly available for several hours.

If you don’t want to check up on an offender by calling the jail, you can also try looking up people recently booked online.

Craighead County Detention Center Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Craighead County?

After being arrested and taken into custody, and after being read their Miranda Rights, an offender will next be transported to the local police or department or the Sheriff’s Department in Craighead County for booking.

Booking is very involved and requires multiple steps in the process, however, keep in mind that most attorneys will advise that an offender remain silent and not offer any additional information about the crime they have been arrested for because anything they do say may be recorded and may very well be used against them in court.

What is the booking process like at the Craighead County Detention Center?

Booking includes having their photo (mugshot) and fingerprints taken, as well as being asked a lot of questions about their personal history and state of mind. If it’s a serious felony, their DNA may also be taken. They will also be checked for warrants in Craighead County and other Arkansas and USA jurisdictions.

If the offender was arrested for a DUI offense, and has refused a breathalyzer test, they may also be forced to have blood drawn by a doctor or nurse.

It is also very likely that the offender will undergo a humiliating full body search while in the nude. This includes bending over, spreading their cheeks in the direction of an officer, and coughing. They will also be walked through a metal detector or x-ray machine, like those used at an airport.

What kind of questions are asked during booking?

The arresting jurisdiction will ask about gang affiliations, tattoos, medical conditions, prescribed medication they are taking, recreational drugs they are on or addicted to, allergies, if they are suicidal, and other relevant information that will help with determining their cell assignment and special needs.

What happens to an offender’s personal property during booking?

During the arrest and booking process an offender will also have all their personal property confiscated and held for either their release from jail, or with the offender’s approval, released to a friend or family member.

Personal property includes the clothing they are wearing, money, wallets, purses, cell phones, jewelry, body rings, earrings, watches, and even glasses if they are deemed a security risk. If they are allowed to keep their shoes or sneakers, the laces are removed.

What happens after booking?

At this point the offender will be allowed to make a free phone call to a person of their choice to notify them of their arrest, and/or arrange a bond or bail for their release.

If the offender is being detained and housed while awaiting arraignment, the Craighead County Detention Center will provide a jail garment and slip-on shoes, a blanket, sheets, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a towel.

Often, before they are dressed in the jail outfit and brought to their housing location, they will be forced to take a shower and undergo a disinfectant treatment for body and hair lice, scabies or other pests that may be residing on their person.

How long does the Craighead County Detention Center Booking process take?

Booking can take anywhere from an hour to 24 hours or more. It all depends on the number of people that are awaiting processing, the number of staff on duty at the time, and the behavior of the offender.

If the offender is heavily intoxicated and/or violent, the Booking Officer may decide to stick the offender in a holding cell for several hours until they become more manageable.

Inmate Money Accounts

How Do You Deposit Money for an Inmate in the Craighead County Detention Center?

There are three choices for putting money on an inmate's books:

Choice 1 - Dropping Money at the Jail

Bring money to the jail in person. 

Jail personnel will process the Inmate Account payment.

Craighead County Detention Center has a Tiger Kiosk in the Lobby that accepts cash, debit or credit cards.

If you can't get your questions answered online call the Craighead County Detention Center at 870-933-4556.

Choice 2 - Deposit Inmate Money Online

Craighead County Detention Center and others often use a private company to process all online deposits to an inmate's account. The company charges you a small fee for doing so, but the fee probably isn't as much as gas and parking would cost to take it to the jail in person.

Go to the online site for depositing funds. You will need to register an account, which is free to do and use a debit/credit card for the deposits.

Choice 3 - Mail the Inmate Deposit to the Jail

Mailing a deposit takes more time to process than the other methods but can be done if you live too far away to bring it in person and you don't have a debit/credit card for online deposits. Never send cash. Always send a Money Order from the US Post Office, a reputable bank or Western Union.

Make the Money Order out to the inmate's name and put their Inmate ID# in memo section of the Money Order.

Call Craighead County Detention Center at 870-933-4556 to confirm the address to send the money order to and how they want it made out.

Failure to do this properly will delay your inmate getting his account credited and may require you to have to resubmit a second money order.

Call 870-933-4556 to ask facility personnel who to make the money order out to, and where to send it.
