About the Richmond County Webster Detention Center

The Charles B. Webster Detention Center in Richmond County, Georgia has a capacity of around 1050 inmates. It is considered a regional medium security jail and mainly houses pre-trial detainees and those waiting for their sentences. The facility opened in 1997, but added a 35,000 square foot inmate processing center in 2014. The Charles B. Webster Detention Center is located at 1941 Phinizy Road, Augusta, Georgia, 30906. You can contact the facility by phone at 706-821-1110.

The Charles B. Webster Detention Center, also known by just the Webster Detention Center or the Richmond County Detention Center, has over 225 employees that work there.

Prior to 1997 the jail was located on 401 Walton Way in a tower that by 2014 no longer suited the needs of the county.

The Charles B. Webster Detention Center Campus

The entire complex of the Webster Detention Center – approximately 50 acres – is enclosed within a maximum security perimeter fence, allowing for all future expansion projects to be conducted within a secured and monitored space. 

The detention center is a pod-style facility that houses inmates. The Charles B.

Recent Bookings & Arrests

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

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Richmond County Webster Detention Center, call the jail’s booking line at 706-821-1110.

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.

Richmond County Webster Detention Center Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Richmond 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 Richmond 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 Richmond County Webster 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 Richmond County and other Georgia 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 Richmond County Webster 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 Richmond County Webster 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 Bail and Bonding

Richmond County Webster Detention Center uses an online cash bonding company called CashBondOnline.com so you don't have to bond out your inmate at the Richmond County Webster Detention Center or at the Richmond County Courthouse.

Here's how it works:

1. Once you find out that your inmate has been arrested, go here and select Georgia.

2. Next select Richmond County Webster Detention Center, or if it is not listed like that, try Richmond County.

3. Next, input your inmate's name or ID Number and then click 'Find'.

4. If your inmate is elegible for a cash bond, the amount will be noted next to their criminal charges.

  • You can only use one credit card, so make sure you have enough available credit on it, and the only acceptable cards are Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
  • You will need an email to do this online, but if you don't have an email, call CashBondOnline at 888-726-6301 and you can process the bond over the phone.
  • If you want to contact support by email, their address is: [email protected].

Cash Bond

  • You can also post bond for an inmate by paying cash (exact amount), or a certified check from a local bank. You must be 18 years old and have a photo ID.
  • Always call 706-821-1110 or check online to see the exact amount of the bond. Keep in mind there may be additional fees in addition to the bond.

Property Bond

  • To sign a property bond, you must own or be buying the property and it must be located in Richmond County.
  • When you come to sign the bond you must bring that year’s tax assessment papers and a photo identification card.
  • The only subject that can sign the bond is the subject whose name is on the tax assessment papers.
  • The assessed value of your property must be enough to cover the bond in question, not the fair market value.


The Richmond County Sheriff also recommends that you consider using a bail bond agent licensed to do business in Richmond County.

  • You can pay a cash bond yourself, or use your home in Richmond County, or in some cases the state of Georgia, but the benefit of using a bail bond agent is that they take responsibility for making sure the inmate shows up for court in Richmond County, and if they don't, then they take the financial responsibility.
  • The typical fee for a bond will be between 10-20% of the bail amount; usually 15%.  So if an offender has a bail of $10,000.00, their bond will be $1500.00.

Call 706-821-1110 to find out the exact bond (plus other fees) amount, or look it up online by looking up the information on the Richmond County inmate locator.
