The Ballard County Detention Center proudly serves Ballard County Kentucky with the correctional rehabilitation for offenders. It is the detention center’s goal to provide a safe and secure facility for the people of the county. From all points in the county they are dedicated to protecting and serving the community. It is also the detention center’s desire and goal to see those who leave the facility reunite into society as productive citizens for both the community and their family. To this end they offer religious and educational programs in an attempt to prevent the ongoing revolving door for those who choose to participate.
