Douglas County Jail Tours


Douglas County voters will soon consider a half-cent sales tax to be used in part to pay the debt service for the jail expansion. The Sheriff's Office is offering residents a chance to come to the jail to see firsthand why this sales tax has been proposed.


A presentation about the needs of the jail and a tour of the facility will be offered every Saturday at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. through May 12. The presentation and tour will last about 90 minutes total. They are open to Douglas County residents who are at least 18 years of age.

Space is limited for these events, so RSVP's are required. You must email your RSVP to Sgt. Kristen Channel at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 5 p.m. the Thursday prior to the Saturday you attend. RSVP's must contain time and date of preferred tour as well as name, address and phone number for anyone wanting to attend.
