The Sheridan County WY Detention Center is a medium-security detention center located at 54 W 13th St Sheridan, WY which is operated locally by the Sheridan 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. Sheridan County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Sheridan Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

In 2006, the Sheridan County Detention Center was refitted to accommodate 126 inmates. Prior to that, our facility was designed to house approximately 50 inmates. The remodel and addition has provided substantially more space and allows for a more safe and secure daily operation.

The Detention Center offers various programs and services for the inmates during their incarceration. These include mental health, AA Meetings, work release, inmate kitchen work, a GED Completion program, and religious services.

The Sheridan County Detention Center employs 22 Detention Deputies and 13 full-time Control Operators. Additionally, we employ many part-time Control Operators. Lt. Heizer supervises the Detention Center and has been an integral part of our office since 2000. During her tenure, Lt. Heizer has been deeply involved in enhancing operations.

Over the past few years, the Detention Center has expanded its operations to include full-time nursing staff, a kitchen that is responsible for the preparation of all inmate meals, and the implementation of security measures to enhance the safety for inmates and detention deputies alike.
