The Marathon County WI Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 500 Forest St Wausau, WI which is operated locally by the Marathon 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. Marathon County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Wausau Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The jail is a modern facility that opened in 1988. Since then, the jail has undergone major renovations and in 2000, a 120-bed addition was completed. The jail currently has 279 beds.

In addition to the jail, another facet within the auspices of Adult Detention is the Electronic Monitoring Program. It is a jail diversion program which removes minimum risk inmates from the jail and electronically monitors their location while under in-home detention.

Another sub-program of Adult Detention is the Huber Program. The Huber Law allows sentenced inmates to leave the facility for work-release, education and job search. Marathon County inmates may be outside the facility for up to 12 hours per day, six days per week.

Juvenile Detention - The Secure Detention center is located within the Marathon County Juvenile Facility and is considered a secure placement for juveniles. This is similar to the adult jail. Reasons for being admitted to a secure facility generally include criminal activity. The facility can house up to 20 children ages 10-17 years old, which includes boys and girls.

Juvenile Shelter Home - The Shelter Home is also located within the Marathon County Juvenile Facility and is considered a non-secure placement for juveniles. This means that children are not locked in and do have some freedom even though there are rules to follow in the structured setting. Children typically are ages 10-17 years old. Reasons for being admitted include abuse and neglect, runaway, uncontrollable, criminal activity, and awaiting placement in a foster home, group home, or residential treatment center. Currently, the shelter home can house up to 8 children, which includes boys and girls.

Inmate Locator

Marathon County WI Jail publishes the names of their inmates currently in their facility in Wisconsin. Your search should start with this locator first to see if your loved one is there.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services. If you need our assistance creating your own inmate profile to keep in touch, email us at aid@inmateaid.com and we will assist you in locating your inmate.

As a last resort, you might have to pay for that information if we do not have it. The Arrest Record Search will cost you a small amount, but their data is the freshest available and for that reason they charge to access it.
