What happens when someone is arrested and brought to the Phelps County Jail?

When someone is arrested and brought to the Phelps County Jail, they are first brought to the booking room. In the booking room, the person is processed in to the Phelps County Jail. This process can take up to 45 minutes, during which time the person's information is put in to a computer, is classified by his/her current and past charges, photo taken and fingerprinted. During this time, They are able to make one free local phone call to try to bond out or notify others that they have been arrested.  During the classification, persons are evaluated on the nature of their current and past crimes and are classified as minimum, medium or maximum for housing.

Dropping off or picking up items.

When someone is brought in to the Phelps County Jail, they have 12 hours to have someone bring in 3 pairs of white socks, 3 pair of white underwear, 3 white bras (no metal wire) for females and 3 pair of white t-shirts. These items must be new and still in the package. Everything else must be purchased from commissary. If an inmate has been sentenced to the State Department of Corrections, they may choose to release their property early and have a designated person pick up any personal items. After release, the inmate has 7 working days to have his/her personal property picked up from the jail or the items will be donated to a charitable organization. No property will be released during visitation times.

Inmate Accounts

Inmates have a money account at the Phelps County Jail. Cash that is brought in from initial arrest are placed on the inmates account. Inmates are able to use this account to purchase items from commissary. If the inmate has any money left on their account after they leave, and they are released during business hour M-F, a debit card will be issued to them.  If release after business hours M-F or on a weekend, their money will be mailed to the address that the inmate gave during the booking procedure on the next business day.
