Jail Information -page 2- and Visitation

One of the primary duties of the Office of the Sheriff is the management of the jail. There are two parts to the Sawyer County Sheriff's Department correctional facility:  The Secure Area and the Huber Facility. The Sawyer County Jail is a 86-bed facility with remote supervision housing pods. The County Jail is a maximum-security facility which houses male and female, pre-trial and sentenced offenders. The Sheriff's Department also operates the Huber Law or work release facility. Inmates confined at the Huber Facility are allowed out of the facility for the purpose of work, education, child or elder care and treatment purposes.

County Jail - Public Visitation (Guidelines and Schedule)
Participation in the video visitation program will be allowed for any member of the general public during normal visiting hours (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday except during meal times)

The Jail  does not allow inmate visitation for the general public on Monday, Saturday or Sunday. 

 When the inmate is booked in, he/she is given a visitor request form.  If you want to be put on the inmate’s visiting list, you must tell the inmate your full name (including middle name) and date of birth. Without this information, we cannot approve you as a visitor on their list.  The inmate must put you on their list.  This is their responsibility.

To set up a visit, call (715) 634-9120 between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM Monday thru Friday only.  State that you would like to set up a visit, give your name and the inmate’s name.  If you do not show up to the visit, it will still count against the number of visits an inmate is allowed for the week.
How many visits an inmate gets per week depends on his/her classification.
Visiting hours are Tuesday thru Friday, 8:30-11:00 and also from 12:30 to 3:00.
There is no visiting on Holidays.
