The Boyd County Detention Center is a 206 bed jail located in Catlettsburg, KY. The jail consists of 2 sections, the original jail built in 1991, and an addition built in 2006 which more than doubled the available beds. The Boyd County Detention Center is a full service facility, housing pre-trial inmates, final sentenced county inmates, and state inmates for the Kentucky Department of Corrections.
Visitation is held every Thursday and Saturday. Inmates receive one 20 minute visit per week, on either of the visitation days. All visitors will need to schedule the visit at least 24 hours in advance and can be scheduled on any of the visitation kiosks in the front lobby of the original jail. Visits can also be scheduled through the Securus website (www.visitfromhome.net). You may also schedule a visit from home on any day other than Thursday or Saturday by scheduling through the Securus website (www.visitfromhome.net). (Note: To visit from home you will need to set up an account and be approved for Home Visitation. You will also need a computer with webcam, a smart phone with rear facing camera or a tablet with rear facing camera and an internet connection. There is also a $6.95 fee associated with an at home visit.)
Due to attempts to smuggle drugs and other contraband into this facility, we do not accept any clothing items for anyone currently incarcerated. Any clothing item an inmate needs, including socks, undergarments, and t-shirts, may be purchased from the commissary.
Inmates who cannot afford hygiene items and writing supplies will be given these items free of charge as required by the Kentucky Jail Standards.
Mail is picked up and delivered on every day the USPS picks up and delivers mail. Mail WILL NOT be given to inmates that originates from another jail, rehab facility, halfway house, safe harbor, or any mail that violates a court order if delivered. Prohibited items in the mail include: printoffs from the internet, drawings in anything besides standard lead pencil and blue or black ink, photocopies, revealing photos, photos relating to criminal activity, photos not professionally developed, tattoo drawings or pictures, lipstick, puzzles, postage stamps, blank paper or cards, greeting cards with glitter or those that are constructed in a way which would permit contraband to be concealed.
Inmates have access to phones 24 hours per day unless they are in isolation for disciplinary reasons. If you are receiving harassing phone calls from an inmate in our facility, upon receiving the call you can press 6 and block calls from the facility or contact Lt. Wilson at (606) 739-4224.
Inmates in our facility have access to medical and dental services. There is a cost associated with these services as there is with any visit to the doctor or dentist. Prisoners will not be denied medical or dental care due to an inability to pay.
