Visitors may be denied the right to visitation by jail personnel.  Intoxicated or disruptive visitors will not be permitted to visit an inmate. There is no age limitation for visitation, but all visitors 17 years of age and younger must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian; proof of parentage or legal guardianship will be required prior to the visitation.  Photo ID is required for all visitors 10 years of age and older; minors can use school identification as their Photo ID for visitation purposes.  The Barren County Detention Center also accepts the following forms of photo identification: driver’s licenses, school identification, state ID cards, and military ID cards.

You can also visit an inmate from home.  There are fees that apply for at-home visits; these fees are covered in the registration office.  At-home visiting hours are Sunday 7:00am to 10:00pm; Monday 7:00am to 10:00pm; Tuesday 7:00am to 10:00pm; Wednesday 7:00am to 10:00pm; Thursday 7:00am to 10:00pm; Friday 7:00am to 10:00pm; and Saturday 7:00am to 10:00pm.

Inmate Trust Accounts / Commissary:

Inmate commissary accounts are a way for inmates to access basic food and hygiene items that are not provided by the Barren County Jail, during the period of their incarceration.  Commissary services are offered to all inmates, regardless of status, except for those inmates who are in a lockdown or whose medical status conflicts with commissary.  These commissary services are, however, considered a privilege and may be rescinded by the jail.  You can find an updated list of commissary items at the Barren County Detention Center’s commissary list page.

To make deposits in person, you may go to the Barren County Detention Center and use the lobby kiosk.  The lobby kiosk takes cash deposits and debit or credit cards and is accessible 24 hours a day.  The kiosk is located in the jail lobby.

Unsecured Bond or Surety Bond - An unsecured appearance bond from you or your surety to be forfeited should you fail to appear as required by the Court.
