This facility in Delaware is a Type I facility governed by Title 15 of the Delaware State Code. The two cell blocks in the Dover Jail can hold up to thirteen prisoners. There is also a sobering cell intended for use to hold inmates who are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. This is a short-term facility, so some amenities might not be available that are available at longer-term jails.
The best way to get information on prisoners still in custody is to call 302-736-7111 and asking for the Dover Jail. There is also a program called VINE that was instituted by the Kent County Sheriff’s Department.
