The Armstrong County Jail is located in Kittanning, Pennsylvania. It was opened in August of 2003, and it has a capacity of 158 inmates, including both males and females. The goal of the Armstrong County Jail is to provide a safe environment for the community while caring for and controlling the jail’s residents.

The Armstrong County Jail currently has a prison board of three members. This includes Sheriff and President William (Bill) Rupert, District Attorney and Vice President Charlton, and Commissioner and Secretary Donald Myers. Other members include Commissioner Jason Renshaw, Commissioner Pat Fabian, Controller Myra Miller, and Pres. Judge James Panchik.

The mission statement of the Armstrong County Jail is to provide a safe county for its citizens while still respecting the inmates. More so, they want to help arrestees improve themselves so that they can become productive members of society.

Currently, the Armstrong County Jail does not offer visitations for the safety of the inmates, visitors, and faculty members amongst the COVID-19 pandemic. They do, however, offer phone and mail services to ensure that inmates can reach friends, loved ones, and legal counsel.


The current Armstrong County Jail has a very long history. Even though the current facility was only built-in 2003, Armstrong County has had unique jail structures in the heart of their city since the early 1800s. The original jails had a classic Victorian castle look that would shock most people today due to its ornate and beautiful structure.

The first two striking jails burnt down, leading to the building of the third Victorian castle-styled jail. The third Armstrong County Jail retained the unique Victorian architecture, complete with carved stone walls. Today, that third jail acts as the County Record Center.


The Armstrong County Jail is a relatively new jail, having only been opened in 2003. To date, 1165 people have been admitted into this prison. As of February 18th, 2021, only 151 inmates reside within the County jail. This is close to the max capacity of 158 but just under.

Most of the current inhabitants of the Armstrong County Jail are white, and most are male. In fact, the overwhelming majority of arrestees within this county jail are white males. Of all the inmates, 11 are held for state prison.

Contacting Inmates Within Armstrong County Jail

Under regular circumstances, arrestees of the Armstrong County Jail would be allowed two visitations per week. Because of COVID-19 pandemic, however, visitations have been canceled to ensure the safety of the inmates, faculty, and visitors. Instead, you can contact inmates using the inmate telephone or sending mail through the Postal Service.

Inmate Phone

Upon booking, inmates are given one free telephone call. After that, they will typically be locked down for classification for 72 hours. Once classification is over, inmates are allowed to use the inmate telephone between the hours of 8:00 AM and 10:00 PM, Monday through Sunday.

Whenever an inmate calls you, you’ll receive a recording asking if you accept the call. The system will initially allow you to collect a few calls without an account. Eventually, you will need to set up a phone account. You can do this through IC Solutions or by setting up a prepaid account.

If, for whatever reason, you do not want to receive telephone calls, you will have the option to block them from coming in. All phone calls will be recorded and monitored.


In addition to talking to inmates on the phone, you can also send letters and correspondence. You need to list the inmate’s complete name, housing number, and cell number, in addition to the address of the jail, on the envelope. Any letters with contraband will be disposed of.

Contraband includes a variety of items, such as stickers, crayons, and glitter. To ensure that you mail does not include any of these unapproved items, personal mail may be censored or checked. Legal mail will be opened in the presence of a staff member.

To find out more about what counts as contraband, contact the Armstrong County Jail.
