The Benton Co Jail is a detention center located at 7122 W Okanogan Pl Kennewick, WA which is operated locally by the Benton County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Benton County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Kennewick Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Washington here.

An inmate's daily life in jail depends largely on what classification level they are assigned and what unit they are assigned to. Inmates are allowed out of their cells or assigned sleeping areas for 3 to 16 hours per day, depending on which housing unit they are in. Inmates with the lowest custody classifications are generally assigned to housing units with the most “time out.” These times can vary as needed for disciplinary sanctions or to ensure the safety and security of our inmates, officers and facility.

Communications - Inmates are allowed to communicate with the outside world via US Mail, telephone and through video visitation.

  • · Mail - Indigent inmates are provided with 3 postage-paid envelopes per week. Inmates with money on their commissary accounts are expected to purchase their own envelopes.
  • · Telephone – Inmates may use the telephone during their “out time.” They are allowed to make collect calls or to purchase calling cards from the commissary. In addition, people in the community can establish a pre-paid account with the jail's phone service provider.

Commissary - Inmates at the Benton County Jail have access to a commissary service. This service provides them with the opportunity to purchase things that they may need while incarcerated. Items available include personal hygiene, snack food, correspondence materials, drawing supplies, playing cards, and phone cards.

Inmates accounts are maintained by our commissary clerks and all expense incurred while incarcerated here are charged to that account including fees for medical care. Debts owed to the County from previous incarcerations are collected as money is deposited at a 60/40 split.
