The Livingston County Jail was housed within the sheriff's office at 901 Webster Street, Chillicothe, Missouri until May 10, 2021 when we moved to our new facility at 919 Jackson Street, Chillicothe, MO 64601. The former Livingston County Jail opened in 1978 under Sheriff Leland O'Dell and closed December 31, 2012 due to a variety of expensive and needed repairs unable to be funded by Livingston County government.
The Livingston County Jail was a 48-bed facility. We had a total of 10 cell areas, 2 of which were strictly used to house female detainees. Facility had 1 padded cell which for high risk detainees who need additional supervision. Jail had 2 maximum security cell areas which can hold a total of 4 men in a more restrictive setting.
Livingston County detainees are now housed at the Daviess-Dekalb County Regional Jail located at 102 N. Meadows Lane, Pattonsburg, MO 64670 and the telephone number is 660-367-2200.
