Detentions

officeIn 2006, the Sheridan County Detention Center was recently refitted to accommodate 126 inmates at any given time. Prior to that, our facility was designed to house approximately 50 inmates. The remodel and addition that was recently completed has provided substantially more space, including approximately 76 additional beds, and overcrowding in the facility has not been an issue.

The Detention Center offers various programs and services for the inmates during their incarceration. These include mental health, AA Meetings, work release, inmate kitchen work, a GED Completion program, and religious services.
