You can also appear in person at the Benton County Jail located at 174 West Washington Street in Warsaw and follow the instructions provided by correctional officers. Please be aware that most inmate visits are scheduled for half an hour, once or twice per week, so you should not expect that you will be allowed to do random visits.

Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Individuals found guilty of sex crimes involving violence, abuse and use of force against the will of the other person are classified as sex offenders and must register in the sex offender registries managed in the local county, the state and nationwide. Typical crimes committed by sex offenders include rape, child pornography, indecent exposure, prostitution, lewd conduct and other types of unwanted or offensive sex conduct. Since Benton County does not maintain a separate registry, you can search for perpetrators at the Missouri Highway State Patrol Sex Offender Registry or call the toll-free number at 1-888-SOR-MSHP (767-6747).

Bail and Bondsman

Many arrested persons need to place a bail to be able to defend from freedom. When you are put in custody, a judge will set the bail amount for you. In case you don’t have the bail money, you can contact a bond agency and ask the licensed bondman to help you by posting the amount at the court for you. Bondsmen charge a service fee for their services, and ask for a collateral to secure the bond loan. When the bond amount is posted, the defendant is released from incarceration and must show in court when ordered to do so. In case he or she fails, the bond amount is forfeited.
