The Kenosha Pre-trial is a detention center located at 927 54th St 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.

The safe and secure operation of the County Jail is a major responsibility and potential liability for the Sheriff. The efficient and effective management of this facility serves as a benchmark for measuring the overall safety of the community. Located on the second floor of the Public Safety Building, the County Jail functions as the sole Pre-Trial Detention Facility for all law enforcement needs in the area. Its design is intentionally unobtrusive, and its location is nearly undetectable. Despite this, the facility and its 80-member staff are required to operate a fully functional detention operation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The County Jail must address a variety of needs, serving as the primary intake point for all arrested persons and a holding area for Wisconsin Probation and Parole detainees. The facility must maintain operational readiness and flexibility to securely and safely handle anyone remanded to the custody of the Sheriff. This includes individuals who are prone to violence or combativeness, those under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and individuals with special medical conditions, including physical and mental disabilities. The commitment to maintaining a safe, secure, and adaptable environment is essential for the facility to meet its diverse responsibilities effectively.

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.
