The Campbell County Detention is located at 601 Central Avenue, Newport, Kentucky. The current facility was built in 1991 with a design capacity of 135 inmates. Prior to the building of this facility, county prisoners were housed at the Court house located on York Street in Newport. Jail population has grown rapidly and the county inmate population has grown to over 200 inmates. To meet the growing inmate population and expand and improve the jail, a multi-phase project was planned and executed starting in 2004.
