Jail Commissary Privilege
The commissary, which is operated and managed through Keefe Commissary, provides a detainee the opportunity to purchase items such as snacks, extra clothing, hygiene items, stamps and envelopes, etc… in addition to what is provided by the Detention Center.
The commissary is a privilege, not a right! The Sheriff’s Office may suspend this privilege for an indefinite period when it is determined that the safety and welfare of the detainee(s), staff and/or facility is jeopardized. Suspension may also be based upon program administrative issues.
For this privilege, fees are established by Keefe Commissary and are subject to change at any time.
Detainees place their commissary orders once a week on Monday nights. All money and money orders/ cashier checks need to arrive at the Sheriff’s Office before 4:00PM on Mondays for the money to be available to the detainees for their orders for that week.
When a detainee is released from the Detention Center, they must report to the receptionist’s window in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office, Monday – Friday, 8AM to 5PM, to request a refund of any unused commissary funds that may be on their account. The detainee must show photo identification in order to receive a refund.
There are four (4) methods available for allowing money to be placed on a detainee’s account.
Money may be added to a detainee’s account by coming into the Sheriff’s Office and using the commissary kiosk located in the visitors’ lobby.
A person wishing to use the kiosk will be required to scan into the kiosk their driver’s license or state issued non-driver’s license. The kiosk will accept cash (No $1 bills accepted).
Credit Card Users
The information (Name, Home Address, zip code, etc...) on your driver's license or identification card must match the information on your credit card EXACTLY. If any of the information does not match, your credit card will not be accepted. If your credit card is not accepted you will need to use cash.
If you do not live in Adair County or are unable to come to the Sheriff’s Office, money orders or cashier’s checks may be mailed directly to the Sheriff’s Office at 215 N. Franklin St. Kirksville, MO 63501. Make money orders or cashier’s checks payable to the detainee. The Sheriff’s Office will not accept cash.
