Conway County Detention Center

The Conway County Detention Center is located in Morrilton, Arkansas and is operated by the Conway County Sheriff's Office. The facility houses adult male and female inmates who have been arrested by local county or city law enforcement. 

Inmates are incarcerated at the Conway County Detention Center for crimes ranging from violations to misdemeanors to felonies. The facility also houses those who have been charged with a crime and are awaiting trial, as well as state inmates awaiting transfer to the Arkansas Department of Corrections. 

Posting Bond

The purpose of a bond is to make sure that an arrested person will appear at their scheduled court date after their release from jail. Judges usually determine the amount of bond, while the sheriff determines the sufficiency of the bond. If a person is arrested with a warrant, it will generally have the bond amount listed. 

Cash Bond: The person who is arrested (or someone acting on their behalf) may post the entire bond amount in cash, which will be held by the sheriff or the court pending disposition of the criminal case.

Surety Bond: Secure release from jail through the utilization of a professional licensed bail bonding company, aka a “surety bond.” The bonding company will charge certain “fees” which are non-refundable and are not applied to any fines, costs, or restitution that may later be ordered by the court. 

OR Bond: Releasing someone on their “own recognizance” is simply a promise to re-appear at a later date for further judicial proceedings. These are only used for very minor offenses.
