What To Expect When You Are in The Clark County Detention Center

If you or anyone you know in southern Nevada—Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, or Mesquite—needs assistance with How to Get Help If You’re in a Clark County Jail, you need to reach out for solid legal guidance.

Call Douglas Crawford Law. With over 30 years’ experience in family and criminal law in Clark County, I have the skills you need.

If you’re arrested while committing an illegal offense in Las Vegas you will generally be taken to the Clark County Detention Center in downtown Las Vegas. Depending upon the nature of your infraction you may or may not stay there for long. You need to reach out to me quickly. If you’ve been arrested and will serve time for a misdemeanor, you may be moved to the City of Las Vegas Detention Center.

If you are trying to find someone who may have been booked into the Clark County Detention Center, you have two main options. You can call the Detention Center at 702-671-3900 but if call volume is high it can take time to get through. The Detention Center also has an Inmate Search Page you can access at: http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/Pages/InCustodySearch.aspx?H=redrock&P=ccdcincustody/InCustodySearch.aspx

Whether by phone or Internet you will need the inmate’s name (first and last as well as middle, if they have one), inmate ID number, and associated case number.

The Detention Center can only release basic information even to family, so there may be much about an inmate’s situation you will not be able to get. I can get that information for you. So once you have found your inmate, I can help you with everything associated with the defense, including these important first steps:

After we’ve located an inmate, we can focus on the bail process. You may post bail during business hours (8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) at the Regional Justice Center by a cashier’s check or money order. You may also post bail at the Clark County Detention Center from 8 a.m. – midnight 7 days a week, also by cashier’s check or money order, but also with cash or Visa or MasterCard. I can also help you with other bail options, including putting you in touch with reputable bail bonds services, and also answer any questions you might have.

You have several means of contacting an inmate. Unfortunately, if your family member or loved one is in the Las Vegas Jail or Detention Center they cannot receive phone calls except in an emergency. You will obviously want regular contact with them. Depending upon the nature of the offense, and their conduct within the facility, most inmates can receive one visit a week but that could be subject to change. If you find it challenging to set up visitation with an inmate, I am more than able to help you. Inmates can receive mail with obvious restrictions—such as no narcotics or other illegal items—so writing to inmates is encouraged as an easy way to stay in touch with your loved ones.

Depending upon the length of the incarceration, you may want to put money into an inmate’s trust account so they can purchase things to make their jail time a little easier. There are many ways to send money to inmates and I can help you with all of them. I can also help if inmates are having trouble accessing their trust accounts or aren’t being allowed to make their visit to purchase supplies.

Being in Clark County jail for whatever reason is a stressful experience. I have over 30 years’ experience in all aspects of criminal defense law and will not only help you or your loved one prepare the best defense against any criminal charges but also make the difficult process of incarceration as smooth as possible.
