When a person is arrested by a KCPD officer, the “arrestee” will be processed at a Patrol Division Detention Unit (see below). An arrestee will be held up to 6 hours at a Patrol Division Detention Unit to provide the opportunity to post bond. If bond is not posted, they will be transferred to the KCPD Holding Facility located within the Jackson County Detention Center. Arrestees are transferred when an overnight stay is required due to Municipal Video Court Arraignment for city charges or Circuit Court Arraignment for state charges.
Please contact a Patrol Division Detention Unit regarding arrestee information. Typically, the arrestee is transported to the detention unit closest to the location of arrest. All inquiries regarding a KCPD arrest should be made at a KCPD Patrol facility. (Do not contact the Jackson County Detention Center regarding a KCPD arrest.)
