The Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office Detention Division is comprised of 22 Detention Deputies, entrusted with the duty of protecting the court process and those involved in it. The Detention Division is responsible for the operation of the Sheridan County Detention Center, and is managed by Lieutenant Gibbons and Sergeant Sulz.
The Detention Center offers various programs and services for inmates during their incarceration. These programs include, but are not limited to: AA meetings, work release, religious services, as well as the opportunity to test for a GED. The Detention Center is in the process of implementing an Inmate Worker Program with the belief that it will reduce recidivism. Recently the Sheriff’s Office has implemented a 24/7 sobriety program to reduce recidivism as well. In addition to the above programs, the Detention Center includes a full time nursing staff, a commercial kitchen responsible for the preparation of all inmate meals, and an updated telephone and visiting system in the form of Homewav kiosks. To put money on an inmate’s books or speak with an inmate, either by telephone or video visit, download the Homewav app. To put money on an inmate’s commissary account, go to www.inmatecanteen.com.
