Detention / Dispatch

The Marion County Detention and Dispatch divisions are located at the Marion County Sheriff's Department, at 221 Randolph Road, in Yellville, Arkansas. Both the Jail and Dispatch divisions are in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days per year.


The dispatch division is responsible for answering all emergency 911 calls; all other incoming phone calls; handling radio communications for the Marion County Sheriff's Department, as well as other law enforcement agencies such as: Arkansas State Police, Arkansas Game and Fish, National Park Service, Flippin Police Department, and the Bull Shoals Police Department; handling radio traffic for all Marion County Volunteer Fire Departments and Marion County Search and Rescue; entering and maintaining accurate records, warrants, stolen property reports, missing persons reports and served orders of protection; handling all inquiries and entries into the NCIC / ACIC system; and coordinating sheriff's department operations with other law enforcement agencies.  All dispatchers must be certified through the Arkansas Crime Information Center.


All persons who are arrested and taken into custody are transported to the Detention Center for booking and incarceration. The jail houses both pre-trial detainees and post-conviction inmates who are serving sentences or awaiting transport to the Arkansas Department of Corrections. Inmates are segregated from one another based on gender, previous convictions, and other safety considerations. The inmates are not allowed to use any type of tobacco products. The Detention Center addresses medical issues and all meals have been created and approved by a qualified dietitian. All detention officers are responsible for the safety and security of the inmates and jail; and are required to complete an Arkansas Jail Standards training program.
