Fees and Services


Housing Out of County Prisoners
The Saline County Sheriff's Department will always house out of county prisoners providing bed space is available. The cost is 35 dollars per day per prisoner, plus reimbursement of all medical expenses that are incurred by the Sheriff's Department during the incarceration of your prisoner.

We will house both male and female prisoners who are seventeen years of age and older. We DO NOT house juvenile prisoners.

If for some unforeseen reason the Saline County Sheriff's Department should have a large number of incoming prisoners, Sheriff Wally George would contact your department and request that you pick up your prisoners as soon as possible.

Criminal History Checks
The Saline County Sheriff's Department CAN NOT run criminal history checks on individuals for any reason other than for another Law Enforcement Agency, Prosecuting Attorney's Office, or for the Court System.

Per statute, we may NOT give a private individual his or her criminal history, and we may NOT run a criminal history on any individual with the exception of requests from the above agencies and court systems.
