Town of Danville

Located on East Main Street in Danville, Indiana, Hendricks County Jail’s mission is to provide a safe, secure, and constitutional detention facility in the most respectful, professional, and fiscally responsible manner possible. Built in 1973 and beginning jail operations in 1974, the original 85,000 square foot facility houses an average of 230 inmates with a maximum capacity of 252 beds available.

KEY FACILITY PARTNERS: Sheriff Brett Clark, Chief Deputy Roger Call, Matron Ronda Elliott

CHALLENGES: Hendricks County Jail wanted a low-cost, all-in-one solution from an innovative inmate communications provider and sought out a new, reliable partner that would not charge a high price for state-of-the-art equipment. They were open to new options that would provide better inmate communications options and wanted to give a new company a chance to make a difference in their facility. After an informative presentation in which HomeWAV asked in-depth questions and showed genuine care about their needs, Hendricks County Jail selected HomeWAV as their partner on November 10, 2015. HomeWAV’s task was to deliver a solution to not only produce more revenue for the facility, but also to provide a much better, reliable service for inmates to connect with their loved ones.
