Benton County Jail – Virtual Jail Statistics

Virtual Jail Statistical System

The Virtual Jail is a statistical system that we utilize to track the number of individuals who normally should be held in the Benton County Jail, but have been released due to the lack of bed space. The following data show the virtual jail statistics since 2006. Keep in mind, that these numbers do not take into account how our jail population would be affected by other variables in the Justice System if a larger jail existed. For example the Courts, Parole & Probation and Patrol divisions may alter there processes if adequate jail space existed.  The virtual jail is an attempt to give us an informed estimate of the number of beds that would be needed and what our numbers would look like if we had a larger jail. You would want to add approximately 20% on to the final number in order to allow for appropriate classification and housing due to security levels of different inmates as well as separation by gender.
