The Lincoln County Jail Division is responsible for the housing management and safe transport of Lincoln County inmates to and from Court appearances. They also monitor safety in the courtrooms, manage courthouse security and active warrants.  

The daily operations of the Jail Division are directed by Lieutenant Knutson, formerly of the South Dakota Highway Patrol. Lieutenant Knutson has been with Lincoln County since 2018.


This service was created as a tool to allow the public to see who is being held in-custody by Lincoln County and what offenses they are being charged with. It provides information associated with the booking of an individual into a jail facility and not with any court cause, case, or criminal filing pursuant to the booking event. Information on this site reflects the basis upon which the inmate was booked at the time of booking and may not reflect subsequent charging decisions made by the Lincoln County State Attorney's Office or the conduct or outcome of criminal trials. This information does not reflect the criminal history or criminal status of an inmate currently or previously in custody. This information is updated daily (except for weekends or holidays).

If you see your name listed here on the website and it’s in error, please contact the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office at 605-764-5651.

Some warrants may qualify for the "Warrant Walk-In Program"

Warrant Walk-In Program

For certain warrants, individuals will be allowed to pay $25.00 as a promise to reappear on their warrant without being further held in-custody. These individuals will be required to pay the $25.00 bond, provide contact information, and receive a court date by law enforcement. Some warrants do not qualify for this program.
