HISTORY OF THE JAIL

In 2007, Jefferson County Officials opened the W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center, a new state of the art facility that nearly triples the number of jail beds in Jefferson County.

Jefferson County and Pine Bluff had long been considered a hot bed of crime for some time.   

The opening of the new W.C. "Dub" Brassell Adult Detention Center with its 315 beds changes the past issues of lack of space for offenders.  The new detention facility affords our agency the opportunity to be able to do as we promised to the citizens of Jefferson County.  That promise is that we a committed to locking up the criminal element here in Jefferson County, something that we have not been able to do for a longtime.

Previously because of detainee overcrowding issues, Jefferson County were forced to house detainees at other facilities throughout the state. 

The new state of the art facility is equipped with video surveillance for monitoring detainees as well as video visitation for the visiting families of detainees.   The surveillance equipment also ensures that the overall security of the facility is maintained.

JAIL OPERATIONS

All persons who are arrested and taken into custody are transported to the Detention Center for booking and incarceration. The Detention Center is divided into separate housing areas for low/medium security risk males, high security risk males, and female detainees, as well as isolation and temporary holding cells. The Detention Center houses both pre-trial detainees and post-conviction inmates who are serving sentences or awaiting transport to the Arkansas Department of Corrections or Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The detainees have access to television.  Smoking is not permitted. The Detention Center has an in-house medical facility area used by the staff physician and nurse practitioner.  In addition, there is a full kitchen where all meals are prepared for detainees. With rare exception, the meals consist of oatmeal/bread or grits/bread, sausage/bacon for breakfast, sub-sandwiches for lunch, and baked chicken and corn for dinner.

Each member of the Detention Center staff is required to complete a minimum of 40 hours of state approved training to become certified Jailers. They also receive certified training in Ethics & Professionlism, Jail Standards, Fingerprinting, Search of Detainees, Prisoner Transportation. Some of the Jailers are also certified as Part-Time II Deputy Sheriffs with the department.

When reporting for duty at the beginning of the shift, each Jailer is given a duty assignment for that shift. That assignment will be as either a Booking Officer, Control Panel Operator, or Communications Console Operator.

Booking Officer:  Responsible for the receiving and intake process for all detainees.  This includes computer book-in, fingerprinting, photographing, searching, change-out, and housing cell block assignment.  This position is also responsible for the dispensing of prescription and non-prescription medications under the orders of the staff Nurse Practitioner, as well as handling commissary.  This Jailer also deals personally with inmates in the housing areas.

Control Panel Operator:  Responsible for electronically controlling all entrances and exit points to the facility, monitoring all security video surveillance systems, operating the intercom system, observing inmates in housing areas, communications with inmates via intercom, and for maintaining all warrants of arrest and orders of protection.

Communications Console Operator:  Responsible for answering incoming phone calls, handling radio communications with sheriff's deputies and other officers in the field, entering and maintaining accurate records in the computer aided dispatch (CAD) system, handling all inquiries.

During 2011, there were numerous persons booked into the Detention Center.  A great percentage of those bookings were for felony offenses, while others were for misdemeanor offences. The recidivism rate for the year was low. In previous years, the jail population count has been as high as 289 detainees, while the lowest jail population count has been 140 detainees. The profit to the County from Commissary sales was $63,440.09. 

Visitation: Each detainee receives 1 visit for a period not to exceed 10 minutes scheduled each Saturday from 7:30 am to 9:30 am.  Visitation for misdemeanor detainees to include misdemeanor females, Department of Correction and those being held pursuant to holds placed by the United States Marshals is scheduled each Sunday from 7:30 am to 9:30 am

Pretrial and Attorneys are permitted to visit with clients (detainees) 7 days a week, preferably during business hours.  Detention Center Staff will make arrangements provided certain circumstances (i.e. court proceedings).  Visitation time restrictions do not exist for the aforementioned persons in this section.

Members of Clergy are permitted to visit 7 days a week for a maximum of 30 minutes strictly during business hours.  If the visit involves the notification to a detainee regarding death in his/her family then special arrangements can be made for the member clergy to visit with the detainee.  NO family member will be allowed to accompany the clergy.

Special Visits are at the discretion of Sheriff Robinson, who has final approval.

 

Detainee Mail

Detainee mail rules, how to address your mail, delivery schedule, and our policies on contraband, sending cash, sending books, prohibited mail, and rejecting incoming mail.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and W.C. “Dub” Brassell Adult Detention Center (DBDC) regulates detainee mail to provide a safe, secure, and orderly treatment-based environment for detainees.  Detainees may send and receive mail and receive approved publications consistent with Detention Center interests and accepted practices.
