About the Detention Center

The Sheridan County Detention Center was recently refitted to accomodate 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 and overcrowding in the facility has not been an issue.
