The Pierce Co Jail, located at 555 Overlook Dr in Ellsworth, WI, is a secure detention center operated by the Pierce County Sheriff's Office. This facility primarily houses individuals awaiting trial or sentencing, typically for less than two years. It accepts inmates from various jurisdictions, including surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service, and the Ellsworth Police Department.

New detainees are regularly admitted to the jail, with some being released on bail or placed under pretrial services caseloads. Others await their court appearances at the facility, receiving necessary accommodations such as bedding and meals. View all arrest records here.

The jail offers a phone program for outbound calls only, with inmates unable to receive incoming calls. Accepting collect calls can be expensive, sometimes exceeding $10 per call.

Visitation Information

You have to create an account on inmatecanteen.com before you are allowed to have a video visitation with an inmate. You must fill out all the necessary information including your full name, address, telephone number, have a valid ID, and be at a computer station that can take a photo of you. Once you have successfully created an account, jail staff will review the submission and either accept or deny your account. An explanation will be given as to why you were denied. All on-site visitations are free.

These visits are not free of cost, video visits are 39 cents and are strictly a cost for the person at home. Persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Be mindful that only one person may visit with an inmate at one time. If there are multiple people visiting with the inmate and are not signed up to visit, then jail staff may terminate the session. All calls are monitored so if there is excessive language, crude jesters, inappropriate dress attire, or exposure of nudity at any time then the call will be cancelled.
