The Brown County Jail accommodates 735 adults and 15 juveniles, with plans for expansion to add 128 beds. Currently, it houses inmates across 11 pods, including those for segregation, females, max security, assessment, direct supervision, juveniles, and inmate workers. The facility employs approximately 160 staff, including correctional officers, intake and housing corporals, lieutenants, accountants, and receptionists, as well as a jail chaplain who volunteers to support both staff and inmates.

In addition to traditional incarceration, the jail operates the Electronic Monitoring Program (EMP), allowing inmates with Huber privileges to serve their time at home using GPS-equipped electronic bracelets. This initiative is managed by sworn officers dedicated to maintaining the program's integrity and effectiveness.
