The Union County Detention Center is charged with safely and humanely detaining persons accused or convicted of crimes against the dignity of the State of Arkansas and the citizens of Union County. The Detention Center abides by state law and Arkansas Jail Standards in housing, feeding, and maintaining approximately 213 male and female detainees, year-round.
With only a few exceptions that are approved by the jail administrators, no items are permitted to be brought in to the detention center for detainees. All detainees are furnished with basic personal hygiene items weekly. Any other items that a detainee wishes to have must be purchased through the commissary. Commissary items are ordered and distributed once a week.
