Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Douglas County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Minden Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Jail Division is responsible for the incarceration of inmates, and the service of civil papers/judgments for the courts. Jail facilities are located in the Carson Valley and at Lake Tahoe. The main jail in Minden has a maximum capacity for 98 inmates, and the Lake Tahoe facility for 22 inmates.

A variety of duties and services are required to support the incarceration of inmates. These include the transportation of inmates to and from court, medical/dental appointments, and to other correctional and mental health institutions. To care for, house, and feed the daily inmate population the Jail Division maintains two kitchens which prepare all inmate meals, and
operates an in-house “commissary” system where inmates can purchase additional food and supplies. The Jail Division also provides daily food and laundry service for the Youth Detention Center at Lake Tahoe.

The Jail Division is committed to helping rehabilitate inmates and prepare them for successful reentry into the community. The Jail Division has several inmate programs that include, substance abuse treatment programs, General Education Equivalency Diploma (GED), interdenominational religious services, job placement training, parenting and family skills, anger management and inmate labor programs.
