Detention Center


INMATE ROSTER (currently in jail)



     The mission of the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Detention Center is to provide a safe, secure and humane environment for both officers and inmates.

The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Detention Center, under Captain Jason Jones, is comprised of one Jail Administrator, full-time Detention Officers, a medical assistant, and an administrative clerk. All of the full time jail officers are required to attend a 56-hour class on Jail Standards. These officers are also trained in CPR, self Defense, and first aid. Several of the Detention Officers are also Reserve Deputy Sheriff’s.

The Detention Center can house both male and female inmates.  Currently, we only hold male inmates on a long-term basis. Long-term female inmates are held at the White County Jail in Searcy, Arkansas. We do not house juveniles. The Detention Center has a capacity of 70 inmates. The Detention Center utilizes Trustees to cook, clean, do yard work and work on vehicles.


      The Cleburne County Detention Center does not offer "in-person" or "face-to-face" visitation. All visitation is conducted through a kiosk system which can be accessed from any device that receives internet, or from a fixed kiosk located in the lobby of the jail. Visitation is available 7 days a week, from 7am to 10pm for family and friends. To utilize e-messages or video visitation, please visit

The Detention Center does not accept any food or clothing from the outside.

Money in the form of cash may be left at the front counter to be put on the inmates commissary account. There is also a kiosk in the jail lobby where money can be put on an inmate's account. The inmate may use the account to purchase phone cards, underwear, socks, commissary and other items off of an approved list.


     Inmates receive their mail daily. All inmate mail going out and coming into the Detention center is checked for contraband. Legal mail is the only exception. 

     Effective January 9th, 2023, all non-legal and non-commercial mail must be sent electronically through or mailed to the following address: - Cleburne County Jail    INMATE ID:  INMATE FULL NAME    500 Amity Road, Ste 5B, PMB 53    Conway, AR 72032

As drugs and contraband in mail have risen in correctional facilities around the nation, it has become necessary to move to electronic communications for inmates. This move will provide a safer environment for both inmates and staff.

All non-legal and non-commercial mail sent to the address given will be processed by the mail scanning vendor and delivered to the inmate electronically via kiosks or tablets. The original mail item will be destroyed.  The Inmate Name and ID Number must be clearly printed on the outside of the envelope or postcard. Failure to include this information could result in lost or misdirected mail. Electronic correspondence including picture attachments can also be sent immediately at

Normal mail rules still apply, and content violations may prevent delivery of the item to the inmate. Prohibited material includes:

  • Racy or pornographic images.
  • Pictures or descriptions of illegal activities.
  • Pictures or descriptions of self-defense tactics, locksmith instructions, escape techniques, or similar material deemed hazardous by correctional staff.
  • Pictures or descriptions of the use or manufacture of firearms, explosives, or other weapons.
  • Drugs or biohazards on the envelope or contents.
  • Threatening or violent content. To find the inmate ID number, go to or jail website.

All legal and commercial mail should continue to be sent to the facility directly.


      Inmates may request to see the nurse by filling out a request stating the reason for medical attention. A Medical Assistant is on site 40 hours per week, and the nurse is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergencies.

If an inmate is on medication they should bring their medicine with them or have a family member bring it to the Detention Center in the original bottle with an non-expired prescription. Medicine is dispensed as ordered by the nurse and/or the inmates’ doctor.
Inmates are required to co-pay for their doctor, nurse and dentist visits. They are also required to pay for their medication and prescriptions.


     Some inmates are allowed to do work for the City of Heber Springs and Cleburne County to help pay their fines and court costs.

These inmates are used to collect trash along the roads in Cleburne County among other assignments.
