The Lake County Jail in South Dakota is operated by the Sheriff, Matthew Wade, of Lake County. The Jail Captain is Eric Starr.
Most inmates housed at Lake County Jail are awaiting their court dates. Some have been tried and are serving shorter times for their convictions. Probation violations and drug offenses are the crimes that most of these inmates commit.
The jail holds around 370 inmates on any given day. The average daily population has increased from 180 to over 500 over the past few years.
The jail houses a full kitchen which prepares over 400,000 meals per year, a medical facility, and a drug rehabilitation program. The correction officers work daily to assist with security, transporting inmates, visitation, mail delivery, booking, food delivery, and basic inmate care.
Inmate information such as mail, visitation, commissary, chaplain care, and nutrition can be found on Lake County Jail’s website.
The mission of the Lake County Jail is to “provide a safe and secure confinement of those persons committed to the custody of the jail, and to ensure that all inmates are treated in accordance with the established laws of the United States of America and the State of South Dakota,” and the Jail administration work daily to meet that mission.
