The Marion County Detention and Dispatch divisions are located at the Marion County Sheriff's Department, at 221 Randolph Road, in Yellville, Arkansas. Both the Jail and Dispatch divisions are in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days per year.
All persons who are arrested and taken into custody are transported to the Detention Center for booking and incarceration. The jail houses both pre-trial detainees and post-conviction inmates who are serving sentences or awaiting transport to the Arkansas Department of Corrections. Inmates are segregated from one another based on gender, previous convictions, and other safety considerations. The inmates are not allowed to use any type of tobacco products. The Detention Center addresses medical issues and all meals have been created and approved by a qualified dietitian. All detention officers are responsible for the safety and security of the inmates and jail; and are required to complete an Arkansas Jail Standards training program.

Written Communication & Letter Policy
The Marion County Sheriff's Department will supply each inmate with two stamped envelopes and sufficient writing paper each week. All incoming and outgoing inmate mail must be clearly marked with both addresses.
All legal mail envelopes must be clearly marked and identified as "legal mail" and must be addressed appropriately. Incoming envelopes from those sources must be pre-printed with the return name and address of the court, attorney, officer of the court, or government agency.
Inmates will have access to a phone system which allows the inmates to call out. All calls made are billed to the person receiving the call. These calls are arranged and paid for through a company that specializes in correctional billing services. Further information may be obtained by contacting the jail at 870-449-4236.
