Pendleton County does not operate a detention facility and therefore all adult prisoners are transported to the Campbell County Detention Center in Newport, Kentucky. The Sheriff's Office is responsible for transporting all prisoners from 8pm to 5am Monday through Friday. We are also responsible for all weekend hours and out-of-state extradictions.
The Pendleton County Jailer, Ken Kells, and his staff are responsible for transports from 5am to 8pm Monday through Friday, all in-state transports and for all court appearances. For information about persons arrested or bond amounts you may contact the Campbell County Detention Center. For court dates, you may contact the Pendleton County Circuit Clerk or Ken Kells, Pendleton County Jailer.
