The building of the Montroe County Jail (Detention Center) current facility started in 1987 and was finished in 1988. The “Old Jail”, as we like to call it, is located behind the current jail. In July of 1988 the inmates being housed in the “Old Jail” were moved to the new facility when the businesses across from it burned and smoke was getting in the jail.
The Detention Center houses Adult male and female inmates. It is a long term facility with a capacity of 40 inmates. All persons who are arrested and taken into custodyy are transported to the Detention Center for booking and incarceration. The Detention Center holds pre-trail detainees and post-conviction inmates who are serving sentences or awaiting transport to Arkansas Department of Correction.
The inmates are not allowed to smoke. The facility has a full time kitchen where three adequate meals a day are prepared by Ms. Edna Smith who has been with the Detention Center 11 years. In additon, the Kitchen is used by the “Act 309″ inmates , who are state prisoners assigned to do work at Dentention Centers and they prepare the meals on week-ends.
