The Oneida Co Jail is a detention center located at 2000 E Winnebago St Rhinelander, WI which is operated locally by the Oneida 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. Oneida County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Rhinelander 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 Oneida County Jail, a state-of-the-art facility completed in July 1999, maintains a capacity of 200 beds. Its "pod" design enables staff to maintain visual observation of the inmate population 24 hours a day. This design, coupled with the expertise of highly trained and qualified staff, creates an environment that minimizes serious incidents and maximizes the safety and well-being of inmates. In addition to housing county inmates, the Oneida County Jail accommodates approximately fifty inmates from the Wisconsin Prison System.

After admission and processing at the Oneida County Jail, if an inmate cannot post bond, pay a fine, or secure release, they will be assigned to a receiving cell or cell block. The inmate will be arraigned at the next available court date, with appearances typically scheduled on Monday at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesday through Friday at 1:15 p.m., though these times may vary at the court's discretion. Arraignments may occur via the Court Video System installed at the jail. All inmates, regardless of their charge or circumstance, are placed in restraints for court appearances. Inmates will appear in their Oneida County Jail uniform, with street clothes permitted only for trials if requested in writing the night before. If release conditions are met during a court appearance, the inmate will be released as staffing and priorities allow. If an inmate's release is ordered but they are wanted by another jurisdiction or agency, they will be detained until the jurisdiction or agency arrives for transport or until release conditions are satisfied.

Inmates may consult with their attorney in the attorney visiting room at the Oneida County Jail, where communications will be private and confidential. Attorneys may exchange legal papers with their clients but are prohibited from exchanging any other items without permission from the jail's corrections staff.

Due to the facility's size, the Jail Staff frequently receives inquiries from the public regarding inmate visitation, telephone use, Huber Law/Work Release rules, and other related matters.
