Marshall County Detention Center


No cell phones allowed in the jail lobby. If a visitor has a phone, they'll be asked to leave their visit and take their phone to their vehicle or the phone can be kept in the jail office until the visit is over. A "no cell phones" sign is posted at the front of the jail. Repeat offences may affect your eligibility to visit.

Beginning on Monday May 17, 2021, we will allow people into the lobby to use the kiosk machines. Only one person will be allowed in the lobby at a time. The front office will not be accessible to the public and the control room operator will be responsible for letting people in and out of the lobby.

The kiosk machines will be available from 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
