The Bell County Detention Center was opened for employee training and orientation. Later, inmates began being housed in the jail.

The goal of the Bell County Detention Center is to create a safe, secure and humane environment for both staff members and inmates.

Former Sheriff, architects, and jail consultants toured eight jails in Kentucky. A combination of the best attributes of each jail was used in determining the layout of the Bell County Detention Center. The result is a non-linear, direct/indirect supervised facility. There are pods for maximum security, minimum security, a dormitory housing unit and barracks for work release inmates.

This facility houses individuals who are officially charged with a crime or waiting for trial of a crime.
