It's here to help you get a handle on how things work at Yakima County Correctional Facility so you can stay connected and support your loved one behind bars.

The Yakima County Jail is a detention center located at 111 N Front St Yakima, WA which is operated locally by the Yakima 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. Yakima County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Yakima 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.

The Yakima County Corrections does not provide court date and time information as it is always changing, instead, we ask that you contact the court that will be hearing the case. You can access court contact information online. The jail staff is not able to deliver routine messages to inmates. Inmates have access to a phone to place collect calls and you can also send them a letter.

Inmate Funds - Funds mailed in to inmates shall be in an envelope addressed to the jail and must state the inmate’s name, location, and resident or booking number. “For Deposit Only” must be clearly marked on the outside of the envelope. Funds may be placed on an inmate’s trust account by mailing to the jail a Cashier’s Check (official check) or money order written out to the “Yakima County Jail” along with the inmate’s name and jail resident or booking number. More information is available on our Inmate Trust page.

Inmate Phone Service - Inmates have the ability to place collect, prepaid collect and debit calls. Prepaid collect and debit account options are set up and funded by friends and family members of the inmates.
Collect Calls - When receiving a call, you will first hear a prerecorded message stating the correctional facility’s name and the name of the inmate who is asking you to receive the collect call. At that point you can:

  • Accept the collect call
  • Deny the collect call
  • Block all future calls from the facility

Prepaid Calls - Not all telephones can accept collect calls (including cell phones). In order to receive calls to these particular telephones, you will need to set up a prepaid collect account for your telephone number or you can fund the inmate’s facility debit account. To set up a prepaid collect account or to fund an existing account, you will need to call Securus Technologies directly by calling 800-844-6591. Prepaid collect accounts are set up for particular phone numbers and will only allow the inmate to dial the number set up on the account. Funding an inmate’s debit account will allow the inmate to dial any telephone number as approved by the facility.

Calling Rules - There is a 15-minute telephone call time limit. After 15 minutes, the telephone call will automatically disconnect.
