The Selma Jail offers a unique problem instead of serving time in the Dallas County Jail. The “Pay-to-Stay” Program is available for qualified men and women who have been sentenced to serve time in jail, but want to serve it outside of Dallas County Jail.

Given the over population at Dallas County Jail, if an inmate is approved for this program it is generally preferred that the inmate stay at Selma Jail. Inmates will also have the option of spreading out their jail time, and serving a day or two at a time, while then returning home for family or work duties, before serving another day on their sentence.

With prior approval, men and women can stay at the Selma Jail in separate sleeping areas than other inmates.

Men and women will not be sleeping in the same living areas.

This fee is due before the first day of a stay in jail.

Phone calls

While an inmate is at Selma Jail, he or she will have access to inmate phones as time and jail personnel permits. Inmates cannot receive incoming phone calls.


Given the temporary nature of the Selma Jail, visitation is not encouraged. With inmates only serving 24-48 hours at a given time, there is not time to pre-approve and process visitors. Make arrangements to visit with the inmate before or after he or she turns himself into custody.
