Jail Programs


The Joplin City Jail continues to operate the electronic monitoring program, which allows inmates to serve their jail time while on house arrest. This program mitigates jail population and, to participate in the program, the inmate must pay a daily monitoring fee.

The jail is also utilizing the Huber Work Release program, which allows those inmates who have been sentenced to serve jail days to apply to receive a furlough to go out and search for a job while they are incarcerated, as well as maintain their employment while they are serving jail time.
