About Prison

The local jail for Grady County, Oklahoma is the Grady County Law Enforcement Center, which is run by the Grady County Sheriff’s Office.  The Grady County Sheriff is Jim Weir. 

The Grady County Law Enforcement Center is a local jail facility.  Local jail facilities work with local law enforcement agencies, including the sheriff’s office and other law enforcement agencies in the county.  For Grady County, this means inmates from the Grady County Sheriff’s Office, inmates detained by local law enforcement agencies including the Chickasha Police Department, and inmates held by the U.S. Marshal’s Service. 

The Grady County Law Enforcement Center holds inmates who have just been arrested and detained, prior to those inmates receiving a bail hearing or charges.  They also hold inmates who are charged and will be awaiting trial, but who are unable to make bail or who have been denied bail.  Inmates may also be held at the jail facility while they are having their criminal trial, after a trial and conviction while they are awaiting sentencing, after being sentenced while they are awaiting transfer to another facility, while being moved between facilities, while being held in the jail so that they can appear for court, or while serving out a sentence to be carried out in a local jail facility. 

Because the Grady County Jail facility is a local jail facility, the majority of inmates who are being held in the facility are there for a period of two years or less.  This short-term incarceration means a few things for the jail facility.  For example, the facility is properly considered a medium-level security facility.  However, as a local jail facility, the Grady County Law Enforcement Center may be tasked with holding inmates who require higher security levels.  In addition, the jail has to determine the appropriate security level for an inmate when that inmate is detained, in order to provide security, not only for the surrounding community, but also for the other inmates.  That is because local jails face the challenge of properly securing a huge range of inmates, from non-violent offenders to extremely dangerous offenders.  That is why the jail is tasked with focusing on an intensive intake screening process, which is aimed at ensuring that inmates are placed in the proper type of housing and get the appropriate treatment while incarcerated.

Another impact of short term incarcerations is that the jail cannot provide the level of jail services that inmates get in prison and other long term holding facilities.  While some of those facilities may have extensive education programs, as well as courses aimed at helping inmates function better upon release, jail facilities like the Grady County Law Enforcement Center process so many different inmates and have such a range of detention times that they are not able to provide the same level and type of services.

All incoming and outgoing inmate mail is inspected for contraband or other prohibited items.  Examples of the types of items that are generally prohibited in inmate mail include, but are not limited to: drugs, alcohol, weapons, over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, tobacco, food, drinks, any item that could be used to make weapons, violent material, nudity, sexually explicit or pornographic materials, information that could be used to plan a crime, gang-related material including images with gang signs, racist or bigoted materials, and information that could be used to plan a jail break.

Grady County Jail Inmates

The Grady County Law Enforcement Center’s Jail Log gives you a number of different ways to look to see who is incarcerated in Grady County.  You can get a list of all of the inmates in the facility, you can run an alphabetical search, or you can search by date.  When you look at all of the inmates in the facility, you get a spreadsheet-type view of who is incarcerated.  Details include the date they were jailed, the time they were jailed, the full name, the date of birth, age, race, sex, and which agency put them in jail.  The default overview is by date, with the most recent arrest listed first.  You can then opt to select the inmate by clicking on the button on left of the inmate’s information.  Once you have selected the inmates that you want to view, you hit the view button to get a more detailed record of the inmate.  This more detailed record includes a mugshot/ booking photo of the inmate, the charges against the inmate, and even a more detailed criminal history that describes the prior charges this inmate may have faced.  If bond has been set, then the bond amount is included on the right hand side of the record.

Bookings / Recent Arrests

The Grady County Law Enforcement Center’s Jail Log’s default setting gives you the most recent arrests first.  While the entire population of the jail is included on the roster, by looking at the top results, you can get a list of recent arrests.  In addition, you can also search the recent arrests by date. 


Booking photos/ mugshots for inmates are included in the expanded details for the inmate, once you have selected the inmate and hit the view button from the Jail Log information page.

Jail Visitation

  • Visitation hours at the Grady County Law Enforcement Center are:
  • Monday 9:00 am through 11:00 am and 1:00 pm through 4:00 pm;  
  • Tuesday 9:00 am through 11:00 am and 1:00 pm through 4:00 pm;  
  • Wednesday 9:00 am through 11:00 am and 1:00 pm through 4:00 pm;  
  • Thursday 9:00 am through 11:00 am and 1:00 pm through 4:00 pm; and
  • Friday 9:00 am through 11:00 am and 1:00 pm through 4:00 pm. 

In order to visit with an inmate at the Grady County Law Enforcement Center, you must schedule the visit at least 12 hours in advance.  You schedule a visit at the Homewav website, which is located at You will have to create an account and log in to schedule a visit.  If you have questions about the inmate video visitation service, you can call 1-844-394-6639.

Like many local jail facilities, the Grady County Law Enforcement Center has transitioned to a video visitation system.  This applies to both on-site visits and remote visits.  For either type of visit, the visitor will not be in the same room as the visitor, but will visit via a screen similar to using Facetime with non-incarcerated people.  Video visits may be less personal than contact visits, but they offer a number of benefits in terms of jail security, which can actually result in inmates getting more visitation time.  These benefits include not having to move inmates for visitations reducing the need for staff during visitation and reducing the risk of transferring contraband.  This also reduces the risk on visitors.

Video visits at the jail facility are free of charge, though there may be limits on the number of visits that an inmate can receive.  There is a charge for remote video visits.  You can deposit money in order to visit an inmate on the Homewav website.  While these charges may seem unfair, when you factor in the cost of transportation and missed work that are often associated with traditional jail visits, for many families remote visitation ends up being a more economical option.  However, there is no denying that the cost of remote visits can quickly become prohibitive, so you may want to budget out the costs and plan visits at the start of an incarceration period if you expect the inmate to be confined for an extended period of time.

Inmate Phone Privileges

As with other jail facilities, inmates at the Grady County Law Enforcement Center cannot receive incoming phone calls.  If you have an emergency and need to contact an inmate immediately, you can contact the jail and speak to the jailer on duty.  The jailer will ask for information to verify your emergency and, at the jailer’s discretion, may choose to relay a message to an inmate or have the inmate return your call.

Calls from jail are outgoing phone calls, which are either collect or paid through an inmate’s jail call account.  The Grady County Law Enforcement Center uses Prodigy Phone Service, supplied by Inmate Sales, to process jail calling accounts.

Inmate Trust Accounts / Commissary

The Grady County Law Enforcement Center uses Tiger Commissary Services to handle its inmate commissary/ canteen accounts and to allow you to make commissary purchases for inmates detained at the facility.  You can make deposits to an inmate’s trust account on the web at the Tiger Commissary website for Grady County, which is located at:

Items available through commissary at the Grady County Law Enforcement Center include: clothing, hygiene items, medical items, candy, beverages, and snack food.  All sales are final and the facility will not transfer package items to released inmates, so you want to check on delivery dates and release dates before sending commissary items to inmates.

Bail Information

Not all inmates in Grady County will be considered bail eligible.  That is because, while bail is not meant as a punishment, but merely intended as a way to ensure that a defendant appears for trial, it is based on: the nature of the offense, the defendant’s prior criminal record, the defendant’s ties to the community, whether or not the defendant is employed, the defendant’s financial resources, and any other pertinent information.

There are different ways to pay bond in Grady County.  Cash bond refers to paying the entire amount of the bail in cash (or by money order or cashier’s check).  This is paid either at the jail or in the court where the bail hearing was heard.  Paying the bond at the jail usually results in a quicker release for the defendant.  When you pay cash bond, the entire amount of the bond is refundable at the conclusion of the case against the defendant, as long as a defendant appears at all hearings and complies with all other conditions of release.  However, if the defendant is the one who posts the bond, it is important to realize that Grady County might retain part of that bond to pay for fees or fines that are assessed during the course of the defendant’s hearing.

You may also use the services of a third party surety known as a bail bondsman.  When you do this, you enter into an agreement with the surety.  The surety agrees to pay the bond if a defendant fails to appear.  In exchange for this, you pay the surety a fee, usually a percentage of the bond amount.  The fee you pay is non-refundable and is not paid to Grady County, but to the bondsman. 


The Grady County Law Enforcement Center is the local jail facility that services Grady County, Oklahoma.  Located in Chickasha, Oklahoma, it also serves as the holding facility for the Chickasha Police Department, other local law enforcement agencies in Grady County, and even for the U.S. Marshals if they have detained and need to hold a federal prisoner or inmate in the Grady County area.

The Grady County Law Enforcement Center operates as a typical local jail facility.  It holds detainees immediately after they are arrested.  It holds adult male and female detainees.  If a detainee is not immediately released, but is held for trial, then the detainee may be given a bond amount.  Detainees who are not offered bond or who cannot pay their bond amounts may be held in the jail facility pending their trials.  It is not the juvenile holding facility for Grady County, but you may be able to contact the Grady County Law Enforcement Center to find out information about a juvenile in custody.  If you are looking for an inmate who is in the Grady County Law Enforcement Center or if you are simply interested in finding out which inmates have been recently detained in the Grady County Law Enforcement Center, then you can look at their jail log.

This local jail facility does not offer some of the services associated with longer term facilities.  For example, there is only very limited jail programming at the facility, though inmates do have access to basic healthcare, including some mental health care services.  Inmates at the facility do have access to visitation, including remote video visitation, jail phone calling services, commissary or canteen services, and inmate mail.  For information about jail services, you can look up the Grady County Law Enforcement Center’s website or you can look through our information pages.
