The Greene County MO Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 1000 North Boonville Ave Springfield, MO which is operated locally by the Greene 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. Greene County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Springfield Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Greene County Jail has 610 beds and an average daily population of 700 inmates. The facility supports the philosophy of "Direct Supervision". Inmate programs are designed and implemented by 180 community volunteers. Inmates are encouraged to attend programs which facilitate a more successful re-entry into the community.

The goal of the Greene County Jail is to provide a safe and secure environment that promotes positive inmate behavior. This is made possible through fair, impartial and humane treatment of all individuals incarcerated in the jail facility. The Correctional staff expect inmate behaviors to be positive and rational. While incarcerated in the jail, it is the inmate's responsibility to comply with all rules and regulations as well as all directives given by staff. Although some of these regulations may seem restrictive to the average person, they are necessary to maintain a safe, secure environment within the jail facility. A positive and rational behavior will preserve and maintain the privileges given to the inmates; negative and irrational behavior may result in restriction of privileges, disciplinary action or criminal prosecution.

  • In the event that an offender receives funds in his/ her account, the price of the indigent orders will be deducted from the deposited funds and any remaining funds will be applied to your account.

If you need a razor, you must make your request to the Pod Officer at the end of each night shift (before the morning meal and by approximately 4:00 a.m.). The officer will check the razor out to you when they are received from the commissary. You will be given a period of 15 minutes in which to use it. After use, the razor must be returned to the Pod Officer. Storing or attempting to store a razor in your cell will result in suspension of this privilege, or disciplinary action if the violation is severe. Offenders who are trustees or are assigned to work release may use their razors at times other than the designated time as this time period may conflict with their work schedule. If you are indigent, you will be allowed to purchase a razor. $0.25 will be posted to your Trust Fund Account for collection when you receive funds.

The following types of items are limited use items. Any of the items listed below which are found in excess of what is authorized will be considered contraband and will be confiscated and destroyed. Empty containers will be disposed of.

  • Ink Pens - 2 each
  • Shampoo Bottles - 2 each
  • Deodorant Container - 2 each
  • Any other container products - 2 each

Inmate Labor Initiative Program

This program was brought about by an agreement between the GCSO and the County Highway Department in 2002. The program is used to place offenders through the courts into a work program that was operated by the County Highway Department until 2014. The GCSO has the sole responsibility over the daily operations of the program full-time. The offenders are tasked with litter pickup and several other types of landscaping or beautification detail. These offenders are transported by a GCSO Corrections Deputy each day from the Greene County Justice Center to the job sites. The Deputy monitors and oversees the offenders' activities while performing tasks to maintain the integrity of county properties.

Offender criteria:

  • Must be sentenced to county jail time
  • Willing and able to abide by all rules and regulations of the Inmate Labor Initiative Program
  • Willing to submit to random drug testing and return alcohol testing
