The Campbell County Detention Center is a county jail for men and women, located in Newport, Kentucky. The facility currently houses over 680 inmates awaiting or undergoing trial, or serving jail terms. Because of a chronic shortage of bed space in the state’s two prisons for women, the facility houses female inmates serving prison terms of less than ten years. Inmates are not allowed to go outside. Visitation takes place entirely by video, and is limited to a maximum of 2.5 hours per scheduled visit. Male inmates in minimum security unit are allowed contact visits for one hour.
