Size an issue for Kewaunee County Jail

The jail in Kewaunee County routinely holds approximately 30 to 40 people on a regular basis, a number that well exceeds its total bed count of 22. As a result, all female prisoners get sent to the Door County Jail for their time behind bars as well as some men if things get really tight in Kewaunee County. Sheriff Matt Joski says having to send inmates to other facilities is a cost they have to bear.

Size will certainly be a factor as Venture Architects and Kewaunee County officials continue with their safety building study, which recently completed the first of three phases of the project.
