Detention Center

Our primary duty is to serve our community by providing a safe, secure facility where people are treated with dignity and respect and learn to be accountable for their actions. 

The Miller County Detention Center houses those charged and awaiting trial, those arrested on warrants, those serving sentences, those placed on holds by Parole and Probation, those sentenced to and awaiting beds in the state prison system or Community Corrections, those sentenced by municipal courts in our county as well as others placed here on holds for other agencies.

The Detention Center can house subjects accused of all levels of charges. We are responsible for securely holding all of these individuals as well as providing a safe environment. Pretrial confinement is not for punishment purposes. It is merely to assure that the arrestee appears in court. Sentenced inmates, on the other hand, are here as punishment for their offense. It is the responsibility of the deputies and civilian staff to make productive use of the inmates time, but not to inflict further punishment upon them.

As of January 1st, 2019 the Miller County Sheriff’s Office will increase the jail board rate to house prisoners from $38.00 per diem to $45.00 per diem. This is due to the cost increase of living and maintaining the Miller County Adult Detention Center and its prisoners. This increase has been approved by the Miller County Commission and Miller County Sheriff.


This phone number can be used to leave a recorded
message for the inmate.  

There is a $1.00 charge for a 30 second message.
