Ellis County Wayne McCollum Detention Center, TX is a minimum correctional facility located at 300 South Jackson St, Waxahachie in Ellis County, Texas. The facility serves Ellis County and other surrounding towns and municipalities, and each year, there are around 728 bookings.

This 568-bed facility holds all types of criminals, from high-level criminals incarcerated for serious crimes such as robbery, arson, murder, and rape to small-time misdemeanor offenders. The detention’s main goal is to secure offenders, their correctional officers, and the neighboring community. The security at the facility is relatively high on account of some of the dangerous individuals held here. The correctional officers are highly trained and armed with maces, and braced to deal with any form of violence.

Most inmates at this facility have been arrested by the local authorities and are awaiting trials in the county justice system. Consequently, most are transferred elsewhere to a minimum and maximum-security facilities in the state. However, those sentenced to less than one year can be housed here to serve their full time.

Ellis County Inmates

Offenders held at this facility are held in two-person cells contained in a secured pod. This is where the general population inmates spend most of the time, meaning there are no lockdowns at this facility. Trusted inmates are further allowed to participate in work release programs which often lead to their release.

You can lookup whether your loved one is housed at this facility by visiting several authorized sites on the internet. However, Ellis County Jail has an accessible and user-friendly website where you can search for your loved one. To conduct an inmate lookup, you just enter an inmate’s credentials, first and last name in the search button on the site, and the search opens up a resourceful inmate roster. However, while the roster is updated daily, the authorities make no warranty on the reliability, completeness, or accuracy of the information offered.

A search will offer you lots of details about an inmate, including their charges, arrest dates, mugshots, bond, race, booking date, and release date, among other bits of information.

Ellis County Sheriff’s Office

The sheriff’s department aids in the running of the Ellis County Jail. The current sheriff is Brad Norman. Brad has been a peace officer since 1998 and was recently voted in as the county sheriff in January 2021. He has previously served as a Chief Deputy, Lieutenant of the Narcotics Task Force, and Operations Captain.

The sheriff’s department is charged with keeping peace and calm in the county by patrolling unincorporated areas that the municipal police department does not cover. It also enforces legal judgments such as repossessions, tax delinquencies, and foreclosures.

You can engage the sheriff’s department on any of the following issues:

  • Inmate visitations
  • County jail records
  • Public safety and criminal activities
  • Who is in county jails?
  • County law enforcement
  • Departmental sales and auctions

How is Daily Life?

Life at this facility differs differently from state and federal correctional facilities. Offenders are shipped in daily and booked at this facility for a short time, some staying barely for a day. Those with relatively small crimes may be released on bail, while those already sentenced may stay for not more than one year.

The facility housing is divided into pods with cells, an outside recreation area, and a common area. Each cell accommodates not more than three inmates unless the jail is overcrowding. The inside of the cell features a sliver widow, while the common area has steel tables attached to the floor where inmates play board games or cards to pass the time.

Inmate Commissary

Most state and county correctional facilities, including Ellis County Wayne McCollum Detention Center, have a commissary store. This store offers inmates additional essential items that the jail does not offer. At this facility, inmates can purchase the following items from the commissary store:

  • Clothing
  • Radios
  • Razors
  • Books
  • Shoes
  • Hygiene products
  • Magazines
  • Headphones
  • Tablets (no internet access)
  • TVs
  • Playing cards
  • MP3 players

However, to purchase items at the commissary store, inmates have to open and fund a commissary account when booked into this facility. An inmate’s loved ones and people of goodwill can then send money to this account via the authorized means. You can send funds to your loved one’s account through the following ways:

You can mail money orders or cashier’s checks to the facility through the United States Postal service. Be keen to include your loved one’s name and offender ID number.

You can also send the funds online at www.JailATM.COM.

If you can easily access the facility, there is an onsite kiosk at the jail lobby where you can deposit your funds.
