Taylor County is operated by the Taylor County Sheriff’s department, and the detention center is located in Abilene, TX. The detention center is located at 910 S 27th, Abilene, TX. The phone number to the jail’s office is 325-691-7423.

It is a medium-security facility that primarily holds inmates who are waiting either a trial or sentencing.  Inmates may also be held in this facility until they are able to have a bond hearing or pay a bond for release.  Bonds can be paid on-site at the detention center.

This facility holds not only inmates from across Taylor county but also from the city of Abilene on behalf of the Abelen City Police Department.  It can also serve as a holding area for inmates being held by federal authorities.

Visiting Inmates

Taylor County Detention Center offers visitation seven days per week.  Visitation hours can be from 8:00 am – 8:00 pm.  Inmates are allowed a maximum of two visits per week, and visits must be scheduled by 10:00 on the day before the visit occurs. Same-day visits will not be allowed.

Scheduled visits can be canceled or rescheduled at the facility’s discretion. Reasons might include court dates, work assignments, housing reassignments, or disciplinary action.

Visits can be scheduled online through the county’s official scheduler.  Individuals who have never visited the facility will be asked to register for the scheduling program. This will only be necessary one time.  Future visits will use the same log-in information.

Visitation can also be scheduled in person by visiting the jail lobby, or they can also be scheduled by calling 325-691-742.

Individuals who would like to visit but live more than 150 miles from Abilene will be eligible for an hour-long visit.  This extended visit is only available twice each month.  Visitors will be required to show a driver’s license with a current address that proves they qualify as out-of-town visitors. Finally, these extended visits can not be set up online or by phone.  Visitors must visit the jail office to receive approval.

Visitors should take the time to ask about specific rules that may apply to visitation.  These usually include some type of dress code that prohibits certain types of attire. They should also be sure to avoid taking personal items into the facility when visiting.  Most personal items are likely to be prohibited.

When scheduling any visit, make sure to ask specifically about visitor rules or ask if there have been any rule changes.  Violating rules, even unintentionally, may result in the inmate losing visitation privileges. Furthermore, if a visitor takes certain types of potentially dangerous items into a facility, even unintentionally, they could not only cause the inmate to face a disciplinary charge, but the visitor might also be prosecuted.

Taylor County Jail Inmates

Jail inmates have access to a commissary and will also have phone access. Each of these things must be paid for by the inmate.  The facility uses a managed phone system and does not allow inbound calls to inmates.  Family members should be aware that all outbound calls are “collect” unless the phone minutes are purchased. The private phone system used by the jail may possibly result in higher than expected charges for those collect calls.  Inmates or their family members are encouraged to purchase phone deposits. Family members may not drop off items for their loved ones to use.

Families can make a commissary deposit via the provided kiosk in the jail lobby. They can also visit www.regentpay.com to deposit funds online.  Phone deposits can also be made through a lobby kiosk or by calling 877-618-3516.

Jail inmates may also be given the opportunity to participate in work details. These jobs pay each prisoner a small wage that can be used to obtain items in the commissary. They include various jobs around the facility. Some inmates may be eligible for outdoor work details doing public works jobs for the county.

Some may also be eligible for a work-release program. Work release participants are usually non-violent offenders who have a proven history of good behavior while at the detention center. Once eligible, they can be released to attend work during daytime hours and return to the center each night.

Inmate Records

Neither the general public nor the families are notified when inmates are transferred to or from the facility. The center does register inmates through the national VINE system. This national system stands for Victim Information and Notification Every Day and can be used to track inmate status changes. Victims can also be notified when an inmate is scheduled to be released.

To utilize the VINE system, a victim must register with the system. Texas does not allow online registration for this system, and registration must be done by calling 1-866-277-7477. Once registration is complete, an online platform can be used to obtain information about an inmate’s status.  The system can also be set up to provide automatic notifications after they have been moved to a new facility, if they have been released, or even if an escape occurs.

Taylor County does provide the public with online access to jail records. This database also tracks individuals who have paid a bond before being released.  To run a public record search, the defendant’s first and last name must be entered into the search form.  The form also allows the results to be narrowed down to a specific date range. The search can also be run with the inmate identification number.
