In early 2016, the Minnesota Department of Corrections issued its annual inspection report regarding the Winona County Jail. As a result of the inspection, the DOC changed the classification of the jail to a 90-day facility and imposed other restrictions which limits the capacity of the jail. As a result, the Sheriff requested assistance from the National Institute of Corrections - Jails Division. Between September 7th and September 9th, 2016, technical assistance providers from the NIC conducted a Jail & Justice System Assessment. The Powerpoint presentation from the technical assistance provider's Town Hall meeting is included on this page to the right, along with other resources.
