The Sheboygan Co Jail is a detention center located at 2923 S 31st St Sheboygan, WI which is operated locally by the Sheboygan 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. Sheboygan County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Sheboygan 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 Corrections division is the largest division of the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office, existing in some form since the office's inception. Despite changes in staffing and operations over the years, the division's primary goal remains ensuring public safety and promoting rehabilitation. Key guiding principles include inmate safety, facility security, and the care and custody of inmates, all aimed at providing quality service and protection to the citizens of Sheboygan County. The Sheriff’s Office moved to its current location, the Law Enforcement Center, in 1981. This modern, linear facility with advanced security systems and increased housing capacity served as the primary custodial facility on its second floor until 1998.

In November 1998, a 95,000-square-foot, 295-bed Detention Center was constructed, offering male and female offenders basic hygiene materials, three meals a day, various programming opportunities such as education, counseling, and religious services, as well as medical and mental health care services.
