How long will I be in jail?
Once you or a loved one have been arrested, release from jail will depend on the number of people who have been arrested and how cooperative the inmates are. All inmates must first be fingerprinted and have a mug shot taken before being released. This process may take a few hours to complete.
What else should I know?
The staff at the Sedgwick County Detention Facility are not allowed to recommend bail bond agent services to an inmate or friend or family member of an inmate. Contact Air Capital Bail Bonds to start the bail bond process.
You can contact the arresting agency to determine where your vehicle is being held if it was impounded. You may need to contact the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office Records Section at 316-660-3888 or the Wichita Police Impound at 316-303-8222.
If you need to acquire an inmate’s property, it may be discharged to a party designated by the person in custody. In order to obtain an inmate’s property, the person designated to pick up the property must present a valid photo identification.
Offenders may also choose to release money to people outside the facility via debit cards. After the inmate spends twenty-four hours in the facility, their debit card will be charged $2.50, and this charge will reoccur once per week. Someone wishing to pick up a debit card from the facility will be required to produce a valid photo identification before a deputy.
All outbound phone calls are made collect, and if an emergency phone call is made to the facility, we will inform the inmate and they can then choose to make a collect call.
All inmates are permitted to have one hour-long on-site visitation period once a week. On-site visitation hours are from Monday to Friday 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM and 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM. During shift changes (2:30 PM-3:30 PM) and meal times (5:30 PM-7:00 PM), visitations are not authorized.
