About the Washington County Detention Center

The Washington County Detention Center in Hagerstown, Maryland, built in 1984, has a capacity of 495 beds, plus a small number of 'special needs' beds for medical or mental health situations. Seventy of these beds are reserved for females inmates, while 425 are for males.

The original facility at this address, 500 Western Maryland Parkway in Hagerstown, MD 21740, was just 56,395 square feet in size and housed up to 162 inmates. In 1988 they needed ore beds due to the increase in arrests due to war on drugs, and increased the capacity by double bunking inmates. In 1992, the inmate capacity increased again with the addition of a Work Release and a Substance Abuse Program. Then in 1996 they expanded the jail with an additional 76 more beds. In 2010, in order to streamline the booking process, they added a Central Booking Unit to the front of the building, and a year later in 2011 added a new addition to the Washington County Detention Center with 96 beds. As mentioned above the new total rated capacity is 495 beds.

For a facility this size it's unfortunate that they don't have an official online Inmate Search feature, however you can look up whether an inmate is in custody using the Vinelink search feature. In addition, you can always call the Washington County Detention Center at 240-313-2133 to get information on an inmate's custody status or get any other questions answered that are not covered in the sections below this. While you have them on the phone however, make sure you get their Inmate ID Number, as you may need that in the future in order to mail them or for some other purpose.

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 Washington County Detention Center can arrange to visit inmates by video, both at the jail and remotely from home. Friends and family can also communicate using an online text/email system, 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 240-313-2133.

Recent Bookings & Arrests

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

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Washington County Detention Center, call the jail’s booking line at 240-313-2133.

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.

Washington County Detention Center Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Washington 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 Washington 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 Washington 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 Washington County and other Maryland 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 Washington 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 Washington 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.
