In an effort to curb recidivism, the Detention Facility uses various volunteers from a wide variety of local churches to provide religious opportunities in our jail facility. The
Detention Facility recognizes the need for Spiritual guidance and direction
within the Jail. A variety of
Religious programs and services are offered all headed up by a full time Chaplain, Chaplain
Douglas Winter. The Chaplain recruits,
trains and works with a large group of volunteers to provide for the spiritual
needs of all the inmates. The Chaplain
provides for various faiths including Christian, Jewish, Messianic Judaism,
Muslim, Pagan and all other faith groups.
Volunteers and Chaplain offer the following services to all inmates:
- Biblical Counseling

for inmate housing bookshelves.
also provides support services for all Sheriff’s Office Deputies and staff.
