The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Detention Center under Sheriff Marty Moss is comprised of one Jail Administrator, One Sergeant, eleven full-time officers and three part time officers. All of the full time officers are required to attend a 40-hour class on Jail Standards. These officers are also trained in CPR, self Defense, Tazer Certification, B.A.C. Datamaster Breath Analyzer and first aid. Several of the Detention Officers are also Reserve Deputy Sheriff’s.
The Detention Center houses both male and female inmates. We do not house juveniles. They are housed in Batesville, AR. The Detention Center has a capacity of 90 inmates. The Detention Center utilizes ACT 309 inmates fro the Arkansas Department of Corrections to cook, clean, do yard work and work on vehicles.


Visitation is on Sunday 9AM-5PM. Visitors must be put on the inmates’ visitation list and must show ID when they arrive to visit. Inmates are only allowed 15 minutes to visit, unless additional time is approved earlier by, the Sheriff or Jail Administrator. The Detention Center does not accept any food or clothing from the outside.
Money in the form of cash or money order may be left at the front counter to be put on the inmates commissary account. The inmate may use the account to purchase phone cards, underwear, socks, commissary and other items off of an approved list.


Inmates receive their mail daily. All inmate mail going out and coming into the Detention center is checked for contraband. Legal mail is the only exception.


Inmates may request to see the nurse once a week by filling out a request stating the reason for medical attention. The nurse is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergencies.
If an inmate is on medication they should bring their medicine with them or have a family member bring it to the Detention Center in the original bottle. Medicine is dispensed as ordered by the nurse and/or the inmates’ doctor.
Inmates are required to co-pay for their doctor, nurse and dentist visits. They are also required to pay for their medication and prescriptions.


Some inmates are allowed to do work for the City of Heber Springs and Cleburne County to help pay their fines and court costs.

Sheriff Marty Moss started the inmate trash crew. These inmates are used to collect trash along the roads in Cleburne County.
