The mission of Adams County Jail is to keep the community safe by providing a safe, secure place for offenders. They also seek to rehabilitate prisons by offering them rights, privileges, and resources.

How to Search for an Inmate

The first thing you need to do before anything else is ensure the person you are looking for is in fact at the Adams County Jail in Nebraska.

To search for an inmate, you can visit the Adams County Sheriff website. Type in the first and last name of the offender you are looking for. There is an orange bar at the top of the page where you can do this.

You can also call 402-461-7181 to get general prisoner information such as whether a prisoner is at the facility or not.

After you have completed your search, you will want to write down pertinent information such as the offender’s date of birth, arrest date, booking number, and any other information you think you may need.

This information will help you to be able to send mail, speak to an inmate, and visit. Information on the website is updated twice per hour.

Staying in Contact with an Inmate

Research has shown that inmate’s who have positive friends and relatives who stay in contact with them have a greater chance of rehabilitation.

Because those who have a positive support system can be rehabilitated more easily, the Adams County Jail encourages friends and family to stay in contact. You can do this in the following ways:

Sending Mail

Offenders are allowed to receive mail such as letters, money orders for commissary, photographs, and postcards. Keep in mind photos may not be sexual in nature or contain any nudity.

To ensure mail is sent to the person you wish for it to go to, you should address your envelope in the following way:

Commissary and Sending Money

Sometimes, inmates will need to get additional things that are not provided to them by the jail. They are able to purchase these items at a store within the Adams County Jail called commissary.

Inmates are able to purchase items such as clothes, shoes, hygiene products, books, paper, pencils, stamps, envelopes, MP3 players, headphones, tablets (no internet), snacks, and other items they may want.

In order for an inmate to purchase these items, they must have money on their account. Friends and family can put money on this account.

There are automated kiosks located throughout the Adams County Jail lobby where you can put money on an inmate’s account 7 days a week. VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and cash are accepted at these machines.

You can also send cash to the prisoner in the mail. No checks will be accepted either way.

Posting Bonds

Because the Adams County Jail is a county jail, prisoners who have not yet been sentenced are sometimes able to be bonded out.

Bonds are able to be posted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the Prisoner Property Room window in the lobby. To find out how much a bond is, you can call 402-461-7181.

Keep in mind that the state of Nebraska requires a bail surcharge in addition to the bond amount. This can be as much as $85 for each bond and must be paid when you post bond.

You will need to pay the full bail amount if you do not get a bondman. A simple search on Google will show you a variety of bondmen you can contact in Nebraska.

If you have any further questions, please reach out to the Adams County Jail at 402-461-7181.
