Interior shot of Kenton County Detention Center

Inmate visitation has been canceled at the Kenton County Detention Center until further notice. Jailer Terry Carl is taking this precautionary measure in accordance with the Kentucky Department of Corrections, Office of the Governor and suggested protocols from the Kentucky Jailers Association. Limiting the no-ninmate traffic within the facility will reduce the possibility of the COVID-19 virus being brought in from the outside. 

Kenton Jail Property Release Procedures

All requests for inmate property release must be made to (859) 363-2417. Requests will be reviewed and approved or denied on a case by case basis. If approved, pick-ups will be scheduled Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00AM and 3:00PM.
