The Waushara Co Jail is a detention center located at 430 E Division St Wautoma, WI which is operated locally by the Waushara 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. Waushara County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Wautoma 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.

One of the key responsibilities of the Office of the Sheriff in Waukesha County involves the administration of its correctional facilities, which include the County Jail and the Huber Facility. The Waukesha County Jail, equipped with 469 beds, utilizes both direct and remote supervision housing pods. As a maximum-security facility, it accommodates both male and female inmates, encompassing pre-trial detainees and those already sentenced. Additionally, the Sheriff's Department manages the Huber Law or work release facility, where inmates can leave for work, education, childcare, eldercare, or treatment purposes.

Aligning with the Jail Division's mission to "safely and securely confine individuals in the least restrictive environment consistent with their behavior, adjustment, special needs, and severity of charges," various programs are implemented to meet inmate needs. These programs include adult basic education, GED preparation, and adult high school classes, alongside career education and job-seeking skills training. The facility also provides programs focused on alcohol and other addictions, offering education and counseling to support recovery. Furthermore, inmates have access to religious counseling, services, and studies, contributing to their rehabilitation and personal development.
