The Columbus Jail is nestled in Columbus, Montana. The Columbus Jail is commonly confused with the Stillwater County Jail.

First and foremost, the Columbus Jail is the short-term housing holding pen for inmates before they get either bonded out, released, or transferred to the Stillwater County Jail.

At most an inmate will be in the Columbus Jail for around 72 hours or 3 days. Inmates will then be transferred out to the Stillwater County Jail for a longer-term holding pen.

Inmate Search

The Columbus Jail as we previously talked about is a short-term holding pen for inmates who have been arrested in and around the Columbus City. With people getting arrested daily and people also leaving the Columbus Jail Daily, it is hard for the facility to keep an up to the minute updated roster for the general public to search through.

This is the prime reason why the Columbus Jail does not have their inmate roster available to the public. If you have questions or are looking for someone in the Columbus Jail, you will need to get in contact with facility with your questions, comments, and concerns.

Sending a Mail

Again, as we previously talked about the Columbus Jail is not a long-term holding facility for inmates. Inmates are in and out of the facility quickly.

With, you are not permitted to send inmates packages, handwritten letters, or cash because by the time they would get these items they would not be in the Columbus Jail any longer.

Please do not send any of these above items to the Columbus Jail as it will not be given to the inmate. It will not be forwarded to the inmate. It will be sent back to the original sender.

Sending Money

Again, as we previously talked about the Columbus Jail is not a long-term holding facility for inmates. Inmates are in and out of the facility quickly.

Inmates will not need any funds while they are in the Columbus Jail.

Phone Calls

The only privilege inmates will have while they are passing the time in the Columbus Jail is, they will have the chance to use the telephones.

The telephone system here is not like county, state, or federal prisons. The Columbus Jail only allows inmates to make collect calls only. So, if the person the inmate is trying to reach does not have a landline, they will never receive the call.

All calls will be limited to around 15 to 20 minutes depending on how many inmates are currently in the Columbus Jail.

You will also need to keep in mind that no phone calls here at the Columbus Jail are private. There will always be a Columbus Jail staff member that will be listening to all phone calls that are made from the facility. That staff member has the right to disconnect the call at their discretion.

Visiting Rules

Visitation at the Columbus Jail is only reserved for the inmate’s legal counsel. Family and friends of the inmates will not be permitted to visit.
