The Walworth County WI Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 1770 County Road NN Elkhorn, WI which is operated locally by the Walworth 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. Walworth County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Elkhorn Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The current Walworth County Jail was built on the north side of Highway NN in the Town of Geneva as a 398-bed facility. An addition to the building in 2003 brought the bed space up to the current total of 512 beds. The Sheriff's Office/Jail was annexed into the City of Elkhorn in 2002 when the Judicial Center was relocated to the County complex.

The facility holds both male and female inmates in direct supervision housing units. Subjects arrested for any criminal/traffic offense, from failure to pay a fine to murder in the first degree, are held in the county jail pending sentencing or bond/bail arrangements. Although you cannot currently be sentenced to the county jail in the State of Wisconsin for more than one year per charged offense, those facing serious charges are often held for longer periods of time due to the length of the trial process.

The civilian jail staff of dedicated public servants manage the day to day operations of the jail. Staff ensures that all inmates, staff, and visitors are kept safe and secure, while maintaining and observing all federal, state and local laws.
