Facility Information

The Payne County Detention Center (also known as the Payne County Jail) is located in the city of Stillwater, Oklahoma, and has a total capacity of 404 inmates.  The jail is located in the same building complex as the Payne County Sheriff’s Office and the Payne County Courthouse.  The current Jail Administrator is Captain Reese Lane.

Payne County was founded in 1890.  The county is located in the north central area of Oklahoma and covers approximately 697 square miles.  As of the 2010 census, the population of the county was 77,350 people.  The county seat is located in the city of Stillwater.

Stillwater is located about 65 miles northeast of Oklahoma City and houses the main campus of the Oklahoma State University, as well as branches of the Northern Oklahoma College, Meridian Technology Center, and the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education.  As of 2012, the city population was estimated to be 46,560.  Stillwater is located in the area popularly known as "tornado alley" and is roughly 28 square miles in size.

The Payne County Detention Center holds adults awaiting trial and transport to state corrections facilities.  The center offers several programs to inmates including GED classes and state certified testing, family parenting classes, drug and alcohol education, and anger resolution.  The center conducts arraignments by video terminal to the courtrooms, which reduces inmate transfers to and from the jail, making the courtroom and the community safer.

If you have a concern about an inmate’s quality of life, you can voice that concern by calling the jail at 405-372-4522, and selecting option #2.      

If you or someone you know has been a victim of sexual abuse or sexual harassment while confined at the Payne County Detention Center, you can file a report with either the jail or the Sheriff’s Office by calling 405-372-4522.  All incidents will be investigated and, if warranted, escalated to the state level for criminal investigation.

If you have concerns that include any allegations of criminal activity or misconduct of a detention center employee, call the jail at 405-372-4522 and ask to speak to Captain Reese Lane.

Post Bail or Bond

Bail allows an arrested person (defendant) to be released from jail until his or her case is completed. 

Bail or surety bonds are written agreements entered into by the individual and his/her sureties (most commonly a bail bondsman) that guarantees the individual will appear in court at an appointed date and time. 

For the Payne County Jail, a cash bond, a bonding company or a property bond are the acceptable forms of bond payment.  Cash and surety bonds (through a bonding company) are the most common type of bonds issued in the county; on occasion, a property bond may be approved by a judge.

Cash Bail / Bond

Cash bail and bond payments for Payne County inmates can be made at the Payne County Court Clerk’s office (located in Suite 207, at 606 S. Husband Street, Stillwater, OK  74074) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.  Payments can be made in cash or with a certified cashier’s check equal to the total amount of the bond, made payable to the Payne County Court Clerk.  Payment outside of the court’s hours can be done with exact cash at the Payne County Detention Center.

Property Bond

For a property bond, the property must be located within Payne County and the property owner(s) must provide proof that the value of the property is at least four times the value of the bond.  Administrative fees may apply with this type of bond.   Contact the Payne County Court Clerk’s Office at 405-372-4774 for further details.

Bonding Company

Bonding companies provide bonds for incarcerated persons and typically charge a negotiable percentage fee of the total amount of the bond.  Bonding companies must be licensed with the state and registered with the county.  You may contact the Payne County Court Clerk’s Office at 405-372-4774 to verify if a bonding company is registered.

Revoking a Bond

The person who posted the bond, along with the person who was bonded out of jail, will need to come in person to the Payne County Detention Center to surrender the bonded person. The person who posted the bond can then request, through the court, that the bond be revoked.

Bond Refund

The Payne County Detention Center does not process bond refunds.  Refunds are managed by the Payne County Court Clerk’s Office, in accordance with the paperwork completed at the time the bond was established.  Contact the Payne County Court Clerk’s Office at 405-372-4774 for specific details.
