About the Marion County Detention Center
In Marion County the local sheriff office is the main supervisory group and one of the law enforcement agencies that uses the jail. The facility is a large detention center that houses all of the arrested individuals, both pretrial and when those who are convicted and serving a sentence, for each of the law enforcement groups. As part of the rehabilitation programming at the facility inmates are encouraged to have contact with their friends and family who are outside of the facility, and to do so via mail, phone calls, video visits, and more. They are also provided with access to a commissary that can be funded through the https://www.marionsc.org/departments/detention_center/visitation_rules/commissary/index.php website, and anyone can add money to their account. All incoming and outgoing mail is processed through PayTel Communications who scall all mail into the electronic system and it is then delivered directly to the inmate on their tablet. This reduces the amount of contraband that enters the jail through mail and keeps everyone safer. Phone calls are provided by PayTel and the account can be funded through the Jail Pack Store at https://store.jailpackstore.com/store/index. All visits are currently video calls, and these can be done from the jail itself at one of the kiosk stations or from home with a web connected device. This is completed through HomeWav and visits can be booked through their system. To visit on site A Pod is Monday to Friday 9am to 5:30pm and weekends from 1pm to 5pm, with all other housing units having access Monday to Friday from 9am until 7pm and weekends from 1pm to 5pm. For remove visits A Pod is 9am to 5:30pm and all others are 9am until 10:30pm. To help the inmates to fill their time and make the most of their rehabilitation process, tablets are available that provide an opportunity to borrow reading material including classics, self help selections, and best sellers, access to a law library where they can expand their knowledge on their own situation as well as others, message their friend and family through an email type messaging system, and there is an entertainment section that call offer television shows, movies, music, and games. Each of these methods of contact and entertainment can be restricted due to bad behaviour, but there are also some rewards offered for completing self help courses and educational programs.

Recent Bookings & Arrests

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

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Marion County Detention Center, call the jail’s booking line at 843-423-8263.

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.

Marion County Detention Center Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Marion 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 Marion 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 Marion 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 Marion County and other South Carolina 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 Marion 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 Marion 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.
