The Detention Center
The fundamental job of the Lewis and Clark County Detention Center is safety and security. With inmates under our care, we are responsible for their well-being and managing their behavior. Day-to-day duties include: meals, medication, recreation, clothing change, court and one of the most important parts of the job is one-on-one communications with the inmates. Once a facility assumes custody of a prisoner, that facility is responsible for providing care to the inmates by abiding by the constitution.
