The Campbell County KY Adult Detention Center is a medium-security detention center located at 601 Central Ave Newport, KY which is operated locally by the Campbell 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. Campbell County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Newport Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Detention Center and Restricted Custody Center house county misdemeanor inmates, and county and state felons. Use the links above to find more specific information.

Phone cards purchased by inmates must be purchased in ten dollar increments. Inmates will be provided access to telephones for collect calls. A machine has been placed in the main lobby of the jail to add money to inmates phone accounts. This account works like the commissary account does, the inmate can check the remaining balance and use the funds as they wish. Money deposited on the phone account does not go toward any debt that is owed by the inmate, it will only be used for making phone calls.

Pre-paid accounts may also be set up via the Detention Center's phone service provider. Contact Combined Public Communications at 1-877-998-5678 for further information regarding an account. Check to see if you qualify for better rates. Savings as much as 50%
