The KCDC is a 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, Kenosha Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Wisconsin here.

In November 1998, the Kenosha County Detention Center (KCDC) commenced operations under the direction of the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department. This facility addresses the secure housing needs of the detention system by employing a direct supervision method for sentenced misdemeanants, including inmates on Huber work release. Life skills and other practical programming are provided to this inmate population as an alternative to unproductive time in custody. With a "build out" capacity of nearly 1,200 inmates, the KCDC, in conjunction with the county jail operation, will enable Kenosha County to achieve a potential 1,500-bed capacity, meeting detention needs well into the future.

In 1992, the Kenosha County Community Service Work Crew was restructured to provide a jail alternative for sentenced individuals posing a low risk to the public. This program has since grown to manage over 100 sentenced inmates. Qualified inmates are placed at various supervised locations throughout the community where they perform tasks for nonprofit organizations. In exchange for their work, inmates receive credit toward their release. The program's success is measured both in the actual dollars saved by the work performed by inmate members and by the reduction in time inmates spend confined in the county jail system. The Work Crew is headquartered at the KCDC and can be reached at (262) 605-5925.
