The Grant County Sheriff's Corrections Division provides correctional and custody services for over one dozen law enforcement and criminal justice agencies locally, as well as coordination of prisoner custody transfer and transportation with jails and prisons both state and nation wide.
Currently, the Sheriff's Office operates a Maximum Security facility, serving the citizens of Grant County. But, exciting changes are underway with the process of building a new correctional facility. The new justice center will combine all custody operations in one location, and provide the citizens of Grant County with a much-needed facility, designed not only for the current need but for the needs of our citizens and the local law and justice community well into the future. The facility will be a model of the best of new correctional processes, practices, and technology providing a safe and secure facility for our citizens and staff, and a safe and humane environment for all inmates in our custody and care.
We currently have 44 correction deputy positions, providing inmate supervision, court security, and transport services. Correction deputies also serve as State certified firearm and defensive tactics instructors for the corrections division, the Corrections Response Team (CRT), our patrol division, and other local law enforcement agencies.
