Some people may not know that there are multiple jails in the Las Vegas area rather than just the main Clark County Detention Center that is located at 330 S Casino Center Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
To learn the names of the different jails, check out the brief list that we’ve put together for your reference below.
The Four Jails In The Las Vegas Area
- Clark County Detention Center (CCDC, but it is also incorrectly called the Las Vegas Detention Center).
- Las Vegas Detention Center (Las Vegas City Jail).
- Henderson Detention Center (also doubles as the Las Vegas Immigration Jail).
- North Las Vegas Community Correctional Center (North Las Vegas CCC or North Las Vegas Detention Center or North Las Vegas Jail).
Background Information About Clark County Detention Center (CCDC)
Clark County Detention Center (CCDC) is the primary detection center in Las Vegas. It is used for people who are serving sentences for gross misdemeanors and felonies in the city and also for those who are waiting for their trials to conclude.
Although the CCDC is the main jail in Las Vegas, non-citizens who don’t have a green card are not sent here when arrested. Instead, they are taken to Henderson Detention Center (Las Vegas Immigration Jail).
Clark County Detention Center vs. Las Vegas Jail
Some people get Clark County Detention Center and Las Vegas Detention Center (Las Vegas City Jail) confused since their names are sometimes used interchangeably.
It’s important to remember that they are SEPARATE facilities.
For those curious, Las Vegas Detention Center is where people are held for misdemeanors, such as petty theft, battery domestic violence (first offense), and DUI (first offense).
Although not as likely, some people might also confuse the Clark County Detention Center with the North Las Vegas Community Correctional Center.
The reason for the confusion is that offenders from the Clark County Detention Center are sometimes transferred to the North Las Vegas CCC when the CCDC has an issue with inmate overflow.
The Environment At Clark County Detention Center
While the Clark County Detention Center’s staff supervises inmates constantly, it’s a busy facility with a lot of traffic, so you can expect fights and other incidents to occur.
However, the CCDC has a no-tolerance policy toward sexual activity between inmates and staff and an absolute zero tolerance policy for sexual assault, which means there may be recourse if someone you know has experienced sexual misconduct while staying at the facility.
To report an issue, you’ll need to call the center and let them know what’s going on. They’ll be able to advise you regarding the next steps.
Inmate Groups and Incentives At CCDC
To avoid mismatching inmates and avoid creating unnecessary friction, the detention center houses inmates who have committed similar crimes together. The facility also separates rival gangs for the safety of both inmates and facility staff.
Furthermore, to promote a peaceful environment, the center allows non-violent offenders and inmates on good behavior to live in large open-dorm rooms, meaning that they get to enjoy some mobility—obviously a very important factor in promoting mental health and emotional well-being.
On the other hand, serious offenders or troublemakers are required to stay in small cells and undergo routine checks by guards.
If you’d like to know about where inmates who are under protective custody stay, please call the center directly.
Finding An Inmate At Clark County Detention Center
To locate an inmate at CCDC, you can either call the detention center directly or use the jail’s Inmate Search page.
The Clark County Detention Center Inmate Search index not only provides information about inmates who have been convicted but also those who have NOT been convicted.
With this in mind, some of the inmates you see listed in the Inmate Search may eventually be found not guilty once their trials conclude.
For this reason, the Inmate Search tool should not cause anyone to jump to conclusions about the character of the inmates.
Inmate Information Restrictions
Information about inmates who are under the age of 18 or who are under protective custody will NOT be released to the public for safety reasons.
Addresses and Booking At CCDC
Clark County Detention Center (CCDC) is located at 330 S Casino Center Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
Standard booking practices are followed, but it’s important to note that non-U.S. citizens who don’t have green cards will be kept in custody 48 hours longer than normal to allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement to examine their cases.
Once ICE has had a look, the defendants will most likely be taken to Henderson Detention Center (Las Vegas Immigration Jail).
Fast And Affordable Bail Bonds
Due to the high volume of traffic at Clark County Detention Center and the inherent risk that being around offenders poses, this is not where you or a loved one want to be spending a lot of time.
As already mentioned, if you, your friend, or your loved one are stuck in this facility, we can help you get out fast. Call us anytime to learn more. We are available 24/7 to discuss your situation.
Bail At Clark County Detention Center
To pay bail at the Clark County Detention Center, you either need to go to the pre-trial services bail bond window or to the Regional Justice Center.
Where you go depends on what court is handling your case.
If your case is with the Justice Court, then you’ll need to go to the pre-trial services bail bond window. Meanwhile, District Court bail is paid at the Regional Justice Center.
Regarding the Justice Court:
You can pay bail with (1) cash up to $10,000, (2) Visa and Mastercard up to $10,000, (3) Cashier’s check made payable to Las Vegas Justice Court, with the inmate’s full name and ID number included, and (4) money order, also made payable to Las Vegas Justice Court, with the inmate’s full name and ID number included.
Now that you know where to go, you also need to know when to pay bail.
The pre-trial services bail window is available 24/7 for posting bail. The Regional Justice Center, however, only handles bail payments from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
What Bail Payments Are Accepted?
You can pay with cash, credit card, money order, or cashier’s check at both the pre-trial bail window and the Regional Justice Center. Personal checks, however, are not accepted at either location.
Remember that when paying bail, there is a $50 fee.
Note: For child support bail, you can pay by telephone or online with credit card, debit card, Venmo, MoneyGram, or PayPal.
Depositing Money Into An Inmate’s Account
Depositing money at the Clark County Detention Center (CCDC) is fairly easy since you have multiple options for doing so. Keep reading to find out what they are.
Send An Inmate Money By Mail
If you’d like to mail funds to an inmate, you can send cash, check, or money order in a plain white envelope to the following address:
Inmate’s Full Name and ID# (must be on envelope)
Clark County Detention Center
330 S Casino Center Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89101
Regarding money orders, yes, you certainly can use them, as you can see above. You just need to make them payable to the “CCDC Inmate Trust Account.” Once you’ve submitted your money order, it may be held for 10 business days.
Personal checks are not accepted via mail.
Send An Inmate Money Online
You can use Touchpay to deposit money via debit card or credit card…online or by telephone. To learn more about Touchpay and how to deposit funds, please call the detention center.
Send An Inmate Money By Phone
Similar to sending money online, you can send money via telephone using Touchpay. Please contact the detention center to learn more.
Send An Inmate Money In Person
When depositing cash in person, it’s necessary to use the kiosk in the detention center lobby. You will need to provide the inmate’s first and last name along with their ID number. You will also need to provide the Clark County Detention Center facility number, which is #289101.
Transactions are usually added to inmate accounts within 24 hours, although that’s the longest it will ever take. Usually, the money you send is added much more quickly, within about 15 minutes.
Note: Before sending funds, please remember to double-check the amount since the detention center is not responsible if you accidentally send too much.
Finding An Inmate’s Account Balance
The Clark County Detention Center does not release information about inmate account balances. This information has to be given to you directly by the inmate that you’re curious about.
You can, though, confirm whether or not an inmate has received their funds.
Releasing Funds At CCDC
Inmates in permanent housing have the opportunity to release their funds via check.
During the release process, funds are held for 24 hours. Once funds are released, they remain valid for only 3 business days, no more.
Whoever is retrieving your funds must have a valid form of ID.
Those who have just been booked but have not yet been moved to permanent housing can release funds to a legal entity, a business, or an individual person.
As for former inmates, to get your leftover funds returned, you have to visit the detention center with a valid form of ID.
Alternatively, you can mail in a notarized letter to the center while attentioning it to “Inmate Accounts.” The center’s mailing address is 330 S Casino Center Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
Transferring Inmate Funds
Inmate-to-inmate transfers are not allowed, i.e., one inmate cannot transfer funds from their account to another inmate’s account.
However, inmates ARE allowed to transfer funds from their own commissary accounts to their phone accounts. In order to do so, inmates have to make a request. Friends and family members are not allowed to make it.
This is important to remember since Securus Technologies is the third-party company that handles inmate phone calls, and if you’ve sent money to Securus in error, thinking that you were sending money to an inmate’s commissary account, you’ll need to contact Securus directly to see if you can get that money refunded.
Transferring Funds To Another Jail and Also Retrieving Funds At CCDC
If an inmate transfers to another jail, then whatever funds they have left get transferred to the new jail.
Inmates who never received their commissary orders should contact Aramark to ask for a refund.
A former inmate that wants to retrieve any funds left on their commissary account can do so by visiting the Clark County Detention Center. They’ll need to bring a valid form of ID with them.
To retrieve funds, inmates can also mail a notarized letter to the following address:
Clark County Detention Center
Attn: Inmate Accounts
330 S. Casino Center Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89101

Visiting Inmates At CCDC
Before visiting an inmate at CCDC, it’s important to remember to wear a face mask, which is required for all visitors. Also, if you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms, you should let the detention center staff know right away before going into the facility.
As of this posting, visits may still be restricted to:
Law enforcement officers, official visitors, visitors who are on the schedule, those who are coming to post bond or pay bail, and those who are visiting to retrieve an inmate’s money or get their property released.
Other than the cases mentioned above, there are only a couple of other instances in which visits are allowed, such as visits for subpoena services and court ordered self-surrenders.
Note: If you’d like to visit an inmate at either the detention center or the North Valley Complex, it’s important to register with a valid ID at the Clark County Detention Center.
Private Concerns When Visiting An Inmate
Remember that when visiting an inmate, your conversation will most likely be overheard and/or recorded since you have to communicate with the inmate via a video booth that is located within the detention center lobby.
Not only is it likely that the detention center staff will know what you’re talking about, but there is also a high probability that other visitors in the detention center will be able to hear what you’re saying.
Private rooms are reserved only for official visitors and attorneys and are not available to the general public.
Given this information, we advise you to avoid mentioning any information that could be used to incriminate your friend or your loved one.

Writing An Inmate At CCDC
Letters can be sent to inmates, but they need to be sent on plain white paper using a plain white envelope that is no larger than 4”x9”, as opposed to colored or decorative envelopes.
When writing your letter, avoid red ink or any other colors besides blue or black ink. You’ll also want to avoid paint, marker, crayon, and so on.
Your letter should include the inmate’s full name, the inmate ID, the detention center’s BO box, and your return address.
