Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Lewis And Clark County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Helena 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.

The Lewis & Clark County Detention Center, designed to accommodate fifty-eight beds, operates with an average daily population exceeding capacity, housing an average of eighty-two inmates. Oversight of the detention center falls under the purview of a Deputy Sheriff Captain, supported by a team of twenty-five Detention Officers and two Transport Officers, along with part-time medical staff including a Registered Nurse and a Physician Assistant.

Medical care for inmates is contracted through PureView Health Center, ensuring essential medical, dental, and mental health services are provided following established correctional standards. Additionally, the detention center employs a full-time therapist through a grant with the Center for Mental Health to address inmates' mental health needs. Incoming mail undergoes scrutiny for contraband and is restricted to standard-sized envelopes and small greeting cards, with strict guidelines prohibiting certain items like manila envelopes, packages, stickers, or items with fragrances or stains.

Health promotion initiatives within the detention center include counseling during medical examinations, education on medication effects and infectious disease prevention, and chronic care clinics for conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Meals, prepared by a dietitian, ensure inmates receive adequate nutrition, with provisions for specialty diets when medically necessary. The detention center maintains a focus on environmental health, emphasizing clean-air environments and safe living conditions for both inmates and staff.
