County facilities closed Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day

The Harvey County Detention Center provides for the safe, secure incarceration of people admitted to the facility by local, state or federal law enforcement agencies, as well as pretrial and sentenced offenders from other cities, countries, the State of Kansas or federal government. 

The Detention Center fulfills an integral part in community safety by incarcerating those alleged or convicted of crime. The Detention Center also aims to serve as a place of rehabilitation, so that when an individual is released from custody, they are guided toward a productive societal pathway moving forward.

Medical and mental health care is also made available to inmates. The Detention Center is Prison Rape Elimination Act compliant. That policy can be found here
