The Kent County Detention Center, located in Chestertown, Maryland, is a recently constructed facility and is built over an older local jail. It is a small facility capable of holding up to 80 male and female inmates with room for expansion, and is the only such facility serving the County. Currently headed by warden Charles V. Mench, the facility provides for the detention of both pre-trial and sentenced offenders.
Apart from providing the basic needs of food and medical attention, inmate welfare is handled through a number of programs and facilities. These facilities include exercise and sports, work release programs, and a library. Visits to inmates are regulated. All visitors must be above 18 years and must carry an identification proof. Child visits are allowed provided the children are accompanied by a legal parent or guardian at least 21 years of age.
Telephone services are available to inmates through prepaid or collect methods, both costing more than normal phone calls, as with many prisons. Money can be transferred to an inmate by means of money order, cash payment at the prison kiosk, online, or through phone transfer services. As with all prisons, there is a limit to the amount deposited in an inmate's account per week. The inmate can use this money for making calls or for buying items from the prison commissary. Inmates are allowed to send unlimited correspondences, subject to the rules mentioned.
