The Sioux County IA Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 4363 Ironwood Ave Orange City, IA which is operated locally by the Sioux 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. Sioux County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Orange City Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

Adult Corrections is an operation which runs 24/7 every day. It's important to protect those inside the facility who have been incarcerated. They also strive to provide programs for the inmates which will benefit them once they are released from the facility.

The jail is a 67-bed facility, containing six pods. A pod is a separate holding area containing cells, restroom facilities, showers and a day room where the inmates eat and spend a majority of their time. The pods vary in cell numbers allowing the corrections officers to categorize the inmates. The inmates are categorized as male, female, work release, pre-sentenced, sentenced, misdemeanors, felons, and federal holds.

The jail also contains a large indoor recreation area, booking/ processing room, medical room and control. The officer in the control room monitors the entire jail.
