Tunica County Sheriff Office Detention Center is currently under construction for mechanical problems. Due to the extreme cold conditions in certain areas of the jail all nonviolent offenders have been transported to Desoto or Coahoma County Jails; with the exception of 2 female inmates that are being held on murder charges. All violent offenders are still being detained at the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center.
If you have a friend or family member that is detained in the Tunica County Jail and you have questions regarding their new location please contact Jail Administrator Reginald Boykin or contact the Sheriff’s Office at (662) 363-1411 and ask for extension 3044 for a Jail Supervisor.
Information regarding the detainers returns to the Tunica County Jail will be posted on the Sheriff’s Office website www.tunicamssheriff.com
