The Detention Center consists of two 10 bed housing areas for male inmates and one 3 bed housing area for female inmates. There are also three isolation cells, a drunk tank, and a suicide watch cell. 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.
