Growing Staff

We Have Grown

The Guthrie County Jail was constructed in 1963. It was built to house several departments within the Sheriff’s Office (dispatch, civil, patrol, administration) and Guthrie County inmates charged with criminal offenses outlined in the Iowa Code. At that time, the jail was permitted to hold 10 inmates and the Sheriff’s office had approximately 5 employees working at the facility. Today, due to an increase in crime, drug use, and mental health issues, there is a mix of 35 full and part-time employees, reserve officers, and chaplains.

Impact

With this growth, County employees are working in cramped, outdated work environments. This has resulted in increased operation costs, inefficiencies, and safety risk to staff and inmates.
