The Kenosha County Detention Center (KCDC) is a medium-security detention center located at 4777 88th Ave Kenosha, WI which is operated locally by the Kenosha County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Kenosha County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Kenosha Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

This facility serves secure housing needs of the detention system by employing a direct supervision method of secure detention for sentenced misdemeanants, including Huber work release inmates.

Life skills and other practical programming for this inmate population are provided as an alternative to unproductive time in custody. With the "build out" capacity of nearly 1,200 inmates, the KCDC, when combined with the county jail operation, will allow Kenosha County to realize the potential for a 1,500-bed capacity that will meet detention needs well into the future.

Charges listed are the charges that the Arresting Agency issued at the time of arrest but may not be the final charges that are charged by the District Attorney. Refer to the Circuit Court website for the final charges.
