About the Leavenworth County Jail

The Leavenworth County Jail is the holding facility for Leavenworth County and provides housing for up to 220 offenders, from their original arrest through their trial and while they are serving a local sentence, or while they are waiting for transfer to an alternative facility.

It is located within the Sheriff’s Office and provides a safe and secure building to provide all needed care and rehabilitation to both male and female offenders.

There are two ways to determine if someone you know is housed at the location, through the online look up, or by calling the facility at 913-684-0789 which will also provide information on bail and other concerns.

While serving any term of incarceration, whether it be for probation violation, arrest, or sentence, each resident receives the full services that are provided including healthy meals and access to both recreational activities and exercise, laundry, and treatments for any medical needs that are present upon arrival or that arise during incarceration.

Addictions are addressed and there are groups and sessions for overcoming substance use, and there are opportunities for social interactions with others, learning and developing live skills, and access to assistance for the reentry process upon release.

It has been shown that having contact with friends and family who are outside of the facility can improve the safety of the building by providing a better mental health state for inmates, so Leavenworth County Jail provides access to mail, phone calls, and visits for each of the inmates who have not lost their privileges.

All mail is expected to take 24 hours to process upon arrival before it is provided to the inmates, and any illegal items or contraband will be removed. Mail is sent to:

Inmate's Full Name & Inmate ID#
Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office
P.O. Box 247
Phoenix, MD 21131

... and it must have the full name and return address of the person who is sending it, contain no money or funds in any form, or magazines or books.

To maintain phone conversations money may be added to the account of an inmate at the kiosk in the lobby or online or through a communication account that will allow the funds to go only to calls to your number. Fifteen minute calls are $3 each, and only outgoing calls are permitted from the phones in the common areas.

Video visits are also encouraged and there is a free kiosk in the lobby from 8am-4:30pm Monday to Friday, with remote video visits being from 8am to 9pm every day. These visits can be funded and scheduled through an account online.

Recent Bookings & Arrests

How do I find out if someone has been arrested and booked into the Leavenworth County Jail?

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Leavenworth County Jail, call the jail’s booking line at 913-684-0789.

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.

Leavenworth County Jail Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Leavenworth 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 Leavenworth 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 Leavenworth County Jail?

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 Leavenworth County and other Kansas 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 Leavenworth County Jail 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 Leavenworth County Jail 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.
