The Ashland Co Jail, located at 220 E 6th St in Ashland, WI, is a secure detention center operated by the Ashland County Sheriff's Office. This facility primarily houses individuals awaiting trial or sentencing, typically for less than two years. It accepts inmates from various jurisdictions, including surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service, and the Ashland Police Department.

New detainees are regularly admitted to the jail, with some being released on bail or placed under pretrial services caseloads. Others await their court appearances at the facility, receiving necessary accommodations such as bedding and meals. View all arrest records here.

After processing, inmates are assigned to a housing area based on classification. Appeals to classification must be submitted in writing within ten days, explaining any perceived inaccuracies. A written response will follow. Classifications are reviewed periodically, considering changes in charges or behavior. Compliance with jail rules typically results in a lower classification and more privileges, while rule violations or additional charges lead to a higher classification and fewer privileges. Notices are issued for reclassification, and appeals follow the same procedure as initial classifications. Inmates serving as trustees within the jail undertake various tasks, including cooking, laundry, and commissary management, often receiving minimal compensation or sentence reduction for their services.

Books and magazines ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. Prisons and jails enforce this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate.

Inmate workers are chosen based on conduct and cooperation with staff. Participation in the community service program can reduce sentences by one day for every 24 hours of work. Inmate workers receive double feeding trays and two mattresses. Commissary is available weekly, with orders submitted via kiosk two days in advance. On holidays, orders may be doubled. Indigent inmates must miss two commissary days to receive a weekly indigent pack containing basic hygiene items, and indigent mail is stamped only for the Attorney of Record or the Court. Upon receiving commissary items, inmates must present their ID, check their order, and sign for it in the presence of the commissary employee.

The jail offers a phone program for outbound calls only, with inmates unable to receive incoming calls. Accepting collect calls can be expensive, sometimes exceeding $10 per call. Alternatively, setting up an account through a third-party phone company may entail high fees per minute of usage.

It's important to remember that all phone calls are recorded, and discussing sensitive legal matters over these lines is discouraged.

Visitation Information

Visitation at the facility is subject to strict rules and procedures to ensure security and order. All visits are monitored and recorded and must be scheduled 24 hours in advance or up to one week prior to the appointment. Visits last 20 minutes, and the cost to visit from home is $10.00. Visitors wishing to visit from home should test their connection beforehand by following instructions at The inmate and visitor scheduled for a visit must be the actual participants, and remote visitors should log in a few minutes before the scheduled time.

Each inmate is allowed two onsite visits per week and unlimited remote visits. Visits must be scheduled around the inmate's program schedule, as inmates involved in court, trustee assignments, attorney visits, Bible studies, or chemical dependency programs are not eligible for visits during those times. Visitors using onsite visiting should arrive 15 minutes prior to their appointment to check in. A valid driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID with a valid address is required for registration; expired IDs are not accepted.

Appropriate dress is required at all times. Skin-tight or form-fitting clothes, clothing with gang-related symbols or objectionable images or language, see-through clothing, low-cut tops, tube tops, halter tops, tank tops, skirts or dresses above the knee, and shorts not worn at mid-thigh or below are prohibited. All visitors must wear undergarments, and hats are not allowed. Clothing designed to mimic inmate or staff uniforms is also prohibited.

Visitors and inmates must remain seated during the visitation session, and small children under three years old must remain on the visitor's lap at all times. Children are allowed to visit only on Saturday afternoons. Any inappropriate activity or disruptive behavior will result in the termination of the session. Visitors who create disturbances, are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, refuse to show identification, or act inappropriately will face permanent visiting restrictions.

The visitation schedule may be cancelled or altered on county-appointed holidays or for safety and security reasons. Staff have the discretion to deny, change, or cancel a visit at any time. Bringing firearms, explosives, escape tools, alcoholic beverages, narcotics, or any controlled substances into the facility is a crime and will result in arrest.
