The Foster County Jail is in Carrington, North Dakota. The facility is also known as the Foster County Jail.
When you add in the jail annex that is situated next door, the total number of inmates will be around 665. The new Foster County Jail will be able to house up to 569 adult male and adult female inmates.
Every inmate will be assigned to a pod. In these pods, they will have a few individual cells that have metal doors and a single window. This new facility is sectioned into pods.
The detention center also has a special housing unit for inmates who may have special needs. These units come equipped with some helpful Mental Health workers alongside a few Sheriff’s who went through specialized Crisis Intervention Training. This unit will help treat these inmates who have special needs and not put them out in the general public housing.
The Foster County Sheriff’s Office is mainly made up of inmates currently waiting for their trial within the Foster County. Not all inmates are residents of the county, but a good majority is.
The Foster County Jail will only keep inmates if they have a sentence shorter than two years. The majority of the inmates housed in the Foster County Jail are waiting for their trial to start, going through their trial, and inmates who are waiting to be sentenced. If an inmate is a sentence to a sentence longer than two years, they will be transferred to a state prison in Carrington. There is a handful of inmates that have already been sentenced.
This common area comes equipped with metal tables, a television with limited programming, and a shower. Inmates will have the opportunity to be in the common area of their pod for a few hours a day.
The old facility had a lot of history throughout the years. This allowed for inmates to throw things at the correctional officers as they walked the hallway and did their surveillance. The old Foster County Jail typically booked anywhere between 300 to 325 inmates every single day. This facility was the old style. They had the metal bars and a linear hallway between cells.
