Missouri State statutes require the county commission of each county in the state to erect and maintain a county jail.  Chapter 49.310 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri states, “ The county commission in every county in this state shall erect and maintain at the established seat of justice a good and sufficient courthouse, and  jail,”.
