The Columbia County Jail & Huber Center is nestled in Portage, Wisconsin. The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency that oversees the day to day operations of the Columbia County Jail & Huber Center.
The Columbia County Jail & Huber Center started housing inmates back in 1994. This was the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office first full-service jail. Back then they could only hold approximately 66 inmates at any given time. These inmates were broken down into 54 males and 12 females.
The Columbia County Jail & Huber Center will hold ALL inmates that were arrested by any of the law enforcement agencies in the county.
It was not until 2018 when the facility was housing a little more than 2,500 inmates. These inmates included 711 women and 1,812 men. The average population of the inmates came into around 36% of them were convicted of misdemeanors and the other 64% of them were convicted of felonies.
The Columbia County Jail & Huber Center has a full-service kitchen. Their kitchen is inspected twice a year. The kitchen will serve over 83,000 meals every year. The Columbia County contracts with a local licensed dietitian to make sure that every inmate gets their mandatory 2,400 calories a day. The meals in the facility cost on average $1,57.
In April 2016, the Guernsey county started contracting with premier physicians services to help provide inmates health care while in jail. These services include a doctor going to jail on a weekly basis, alongside a full-time nurse and two part-time nurses.
This program has saved the Guernsey county a ton of money and provided much better medical care to the inmates.
