The Marion County Detention Center’s mission is to ensure all employees are knowledgeable of the baseline standards and are adequately trained to carry out their duties in accordance with standards. Our duty is to house incarcerated offenders in a manner that protects the public and institutional safety while providing a legal standard of care and to provide programs intended to reduce the likelihood of re-incarceration.
All bonds should be paid in the County where the crime was committed at the Circuit Clerk’s office.
