The mission of the Ness County Jail is to provide a safe and secure confinement of those persons committed to the custody of the jail, and to ensure that all inmates are treated in accordance with the established laws of the United States of America and the State of Kansas, and the Jail administration work daily to meet that mission.
The Ness County Jail is a medium-security facility. The facility only houses both adult male and adult female inmates. Juvenile inmates are housed in a separate facility in the county. This facility does not house juvenile inmates.
The jail is divided into “pods,” each of which includes individual cells (2-3 inmates per cell), sitting areas, and an outside recreation court where inmates can play basketball or work out.
Inmate information such as mail, visitation, commissary, chaplain care, and nutrition can be found on Ness County Jail’s website.
The layout of the jail was not user-friendly whatsoever, while the jail did not provide a safe working environment for the staff members. Back in 2013, the Kansas State Department of Corrections Chief Jail Inspector, Delbert Longley announced to the Sheriff and the Board of Supervisors that the Ness County Jail was not meeting the necessary needs of the public, inmates, or staff members. In 10-15 years, the Ness County Jail lost its “grandfathered” status.
The canteen is also known as the commissary. Inmates will also have the chance to purchase other items in the jail canteen. The commissary sells junk food, beverages, sneakers, clothing, and entertainment items.
Inmates are allowed one hour of recreation time a day. This jail also provides a work release program and other specialized services to the inmates. Inmates also receive education programs and a TV in the sitting area.
The Ness County Jail in Kansas is operated by the Sheriff of Ness County.
