The Saline County Detention Center is under the leadership of Detention Administrator Captain Wade Gilliam.   






The mission of the Saline County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center in partnership with the community is to operate the county jail in a safe, efficient and cost effective manner.  It is a core function of the jail to be fiscally prudent while providing continuous monitoring for inmate and staff safety.

The purpose of the Saline County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center is to provide a detention facility that is secure and safe and where the rights of inmates are protected.  It is the goal of the Saline County Sheriff’s Office to establish an environment of respect and dignity toward inmates and to strive for staff sensitivity toward persons under their care.

The responsibilities for inmate care and officer safety are tremendous.  Correctional Officers are responsible for facility security by overseeing individuals who have been arrested and are awaiting trial or who have been convicted of a criminal offense and sentenced to serve time in jail.  One way to achieve this is to instill the mindset that all Correctional Officers are to conduct themselves in a professional and respectful manner to all persons who enter the facility.


The Saline County Detention Center has implemented a system that creates a more convenient way for family and friends to communicate with inmates in our facility.  The Detention Center installed the CityTelecoin System which will allow visitation seven days a week from 8:00am until 10:00pm using your home computer, smart phone or tablet.  Anyone who would like to utilize this system will need to go to and set up an account.  Questions regarding the set up process must be directed to (318) 746-1114.  Once the account has been set up, the detainee's name will show on the monitor inside of the pod where he or she is housed.  There is no need to call the Detention Center to ask for a deputy to notify your loved one.  There is no face to face visitation.
