The Duplin County Detention Center is a medium-security detention center located at 208 Duplin St Kenansville, NC which is operated locally by the Duplin 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. Duplin County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Kenansville Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

Inmates held at the Duplin County Detention center range from those charged with offenses such as theft and non-payment of child support to felony offenses such as rape and murder. Non-violent, minimum-security offenders assist in the detention center kitchen, provide lawn care for the sheriff office grounds, wash cars for the detectives and patrol deputies, work on the road crew providing litter pick up along roadways throughout the county, clean up public cemeteries, and provide cleaning and painting services at local schools during the summer months.

The detention center operates under the orders of the sheriff and is supervised by a captain and a lieutenant who are responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operation of the detention facility in accordance with state laws and regulations.

Orders are placed by Tuesday of each week and are delivered the next day.
