Located in Illinois, the Mattoon Jail has a total of 8 jail cells, so it is small in size. The Mattoon Jail houses people who are both still awaiting arraignment as well as those who have been sentenced. Usually, inmates have a sell to themselves, but they might need to share a cell with another inmate. There are also two temporary cells designed for temporary holdings as inmates are being transferred to another facility.
To locate an inmate, call the non-emergency phone number at 217-235-5451, 217-258-7901. Plan to have available the inmate’s full name and date of birth, as this will help facilitate a search for the inmate.
