About the White County Detention Center

The White County Detention Center operates with up to 380 inmates at any time, with four dorms for females and eleven pods for men.

Upon arrival each will undergo the booking process which will include mug shots, fingerprints, possibly DNA, and an assessment to determine their security needs and housing assignment. This will also affect the programs that are available to them, ensuring they access the ones that will meet their needs, and provide any necessary medical and mental health care.

Dorm housing is used for low security risk inmates, having several bunkbeds in one large space that has access to bathrooms, seating for meals and recreation, and they are free to move around the space during the day. Pods consist of cells that surround a common area, which will have either single or double occupancy cells, and they operate as a small community within the facility.

To determine where an inmate is housed, information on their bail, or other unrestricted information White County Detention Center can be contacted at 501-278-8050.

Any inmates who require additional medical care can be housed in the medical unit, with room for up to 8 inmates in the medical unit, while others will receive care onsite while they are housed in other areas.

Nutritional needs are met through healthy meals, laundry ensures that clothing, bedding, and other items are clean, and hygiene items are provided for all residents. Recreation is provided around a strict schedule, and there are opportunities for correspondence, telephone calls, and visits.

To add money to the account of an inmate there is a kiosk in the lobby as well as online access, and their phone accounts can also be funded online, which will permit them to make outgoing calls.

One free visit is provided each week.

Mail is delivered via the post office and is both picked up and delivered to White County Detention Center each weekday at:

Recent Bookings & Arrests

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

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the White County Detention Center, call the jail’s booking line at 501-278-8050.

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.

White County Detention Center Booking Roster

What happens during booking in White 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 White 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 White 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 White 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 White 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 White 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 White 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.

White 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 White County Detention Center at 501-278-8050.

Choice 2 - Deposit Inmate Money Online

White 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 White County Detention Center at 501-278-8050 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 501-278-8050 to ask facility personnel who to make the money order out to, and where to send it.
