Jail Information

The mission of the Marshall County Jail is to provide location suitable for the control, care, and safety for those persons who are being detained or confined in accordance with the law.

Commissary Information: Persons in the Marshall County Jail can purchase food, personal hygiene and other items, weekly ( including holidays) from the jail's commissary. Money is deposited to an  inmate's account and, in turn, inmates may purchase commissary items drawing on the funds in their account. Inmates on restriction status may purchase only personal hygiene items. The purchase of commissary items by incarcerated persons is a privilege and not a right. Access to the commissary may be withheld for just cause.

Persons may make deposits to an inmate's commissary account in two different ways:

  1. In person with cash only: Cash Deposits are at the Sheriff's Office inside the north entrance of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at 107 South 13th Street, Marysville, Kansas.
    Deposits can be made from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday- excluding county holidays. The minimum deposit accepted is $5.00 and the maximum is $100.00.
  2. Via the U.S. Mail with money orders: Deposits are be made to commissary accounts via the U.S. Mail but only Postal Prepaid Money Orders, other accredited prepaid money orders and U.S. government checks are accepted. Cash, personal or payroll checks and credit cards numbers are not accepted. All money orders received for deposit on inmate accounts must be made payable to Marshall County Inmate Account. The inmate's name, must be on the money order and be the one that the inmate used when they were processed into the jail. Money orders without the necessary information will be returned to the sender.

Visitation:  Inmates of the Marshall County Jail are allowed to have visits while being incarcerated at the jail, except when an inmate is restricted from doing so. Failure to follow the visitation rules will result in the cancellation of a visit and possible suspension of the visitor or inmate from future visiting privileges. It is the inmate's responsibility to comply with all rules and to inform their visitors of these rules, so that a scheduled visit is successfully completed.

Visitation Schedule:

Thursdays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.  Please sign in when you arrive.
Sundays from 1:00 to 4:00 pm .  Please sign in when you arrive.

Inmates will be brought in from the jail one at a time on visitation day. Time allotted for each visit depends on the number of persons signing in to see inmates. If time permits for a second visitation, then it will be permitted.  Only two visitors will be allowed at one time. Any additional persons must wait in the waiting area if room permits. All others must remain outside the office.  All persons under the age of eighteen must be accompanied by their legal guardian. All visitors must be properly dressed. No revealing clothing.  Any Sheriff’s Office personnel can, at their discretion ,refuse visitation if someone is not dressed appropriately.  Visitors may only visit once a week.
