History

Dumas Jail was constructed in 2000 and it lies in Desha County, Arkansas. It is formally known as the City of Dumas Detention Center and the jail sometimes is confused with the Desha County Detention Center. Inmates are usually brought to the jail for small crimes. The inmate's area is adults only and it is a medium security detention facility. From 1860 to 1865 the civil war going raging on within the United States. During this time, Desha County had their records moved down to Richard Township then to Clarksville, Texas, however, when the county tried to retrieve their records, some were lost.

Unfortunately, any prevalent information on this jail could have been lost or why it was made. There was a good possible chance this jail was a replacement for jails before it. Watson Jail, which is now a historical site seems to have closed down around the mid-twentieth century. Information as far it is known has been lost at some point. It could have been the jail before the City of Dumas built the jail they have today. It is still up in Watson, Arkansas.

On May 14, 1997, a man died in his cell at the Police department in Dumas, Arkansas. The man family wanted justice for how the police treated their family member. The arrest made was unlawful, forceful and it led to the death of the man. The city and the department denied any and all accusations on this matter. The possible reason for the arrest was for attempted burglary and being publically drunk. The man was assumed not in the right state of mind but the family had proof that he was not intoxicated. The victim in question was not in an unfriendly conversation with the man.

The arrest led to an altercation between him and the officer. He was sprayed a few time before and after entering his cell. The man around seven at night had killed himself in his cell. It was after being sprayed again and asking to leave. It was said that the police of Dumas should have known better than the man was suicidal and would have killed himself in his jail that night. It was for the account of an incident that happened about four years ago. The city and police department of Dumas versus the family of the old prisoner, both did not have enough information to be tried.

Dumas Jail in Dumas Arkansas can be confused with the Texas Dumas Jail.
