Ottawa County Detention Center is located in Minneapolis, Kansas approximately twenty-three miles north of Salina, Kansas just off US 81 Highway.  We opened our new facility in December of 1996 right behind the Ottawa County Courthouse.  We are a 60 bed facility and house contract inmates as well as inmates from our own county.
