The Jail Division is responsible for the daily needs of pre-trial and post-trial detainees. Those responsibilities include: Daily hygiene needs, banking, food service, laundry service and medical needs. The minimum staffing per shift to safely operate the jail is five.

In order to maintain operation 24 hours per day 7 days a week we currently employ four shift sergeants, two staff sergeants, and 20 corrections officers.

The transportation officers are under the command of the Jail Division. They are tasked with the responsibility of safely transporting inmate/detainees to the Lincoln County Jail from other jurisdictions. They’re jobs also consist of transporting inmate/detainees to various courts, both state and federal as well as transporting inmate/detainees to state and federal prisons.

The Sheriff’s Office contracts with CBM Food Service to provide daily meals.  Their purpose is to provide nutritional meals for the detainees that are incarcerated in the jail. CBM prides themselves on keeping down the overall cost of meals. They prepare three meals each day for every detainee. They are also tasked with complying with any special dietary needs.

Bonding is done 24 hours a day, 7-days a week. We accept cash. Bondsmen are listed in the phone book for surety bonds.
