The Calloway County Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 310 N 4th St Murray, KY which is operated locally by the Calloway 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. Calloway County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Murray Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

Mail - All incoming inmate mail shall be Post Office approved postcard only. This policy is necessary for an attempt to decrease the amount of contraband entering the Jail through regular envelopes. The postcard incoming mail restriction does not apply to the Courts, practicing attorneys, public officials or approved clergy.

No magazines or newspapers shall be mailed to or subscribed to for delivery to the jail. Money received by the jail must be in the form of cash or money order. Money orders must be made out to the Calloway County Jail and have the inmate’s name in the memo. Money mailed in for placement on an inmate’s account must be in an envelope by itself and the envelope addressed to the Calloway County Jail c/o Inmate Accounts.

Money - may be left for an inmate in the form of cash or money order. Money may be left during regular business hours or during visitation. If an inmate owes money to the jail ½ of money deposited in the account will be applied to fees owed. Upon release, any money on an inmate account will be applied to fees owed.

Due to new banking regulations, all money orders that come to the Calloway County Jail must be made payable to the Calloway County Jail and reference the inmate for whom the money order is intended in the lower left-hand corner.

Money orders not prepared in this manner will not be accepted for placement on the inmate's account.

It should be noted that the Jail is not required to accept money via mail. We do this as a convenience for inmates and their family. Should this change in policy become a problem for the jail we will discontinue accepting any money by mail.

Permitted Items - Any items left that are not on this list may be destroyed.

  • The person leaving the property shall be required to list all articles left on the property sheet.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services. If you need our assistance creating your own inmate profile to keep in touch, email us at aid@inmateaid.com and we will assist you in locating your inmate.

As a last resort, you might have to pay for that information if we do not have it. The Arrest Record Search will cost you a small amount, but their data is the freshest available and for that reason they charge to access it.
