The Dane County Sheriff’s Office announces a new link to their webpage (; adding to its growing list of existing resources for community use and awareness.

The new link, “Current Inmate Population Demographics,” supplements the “Inmate Listing” link that was added in 2018. The Jail Population Demographics link captures and consolidates the aggregate information (population, sex, race, ethnicity, judicial status, age, and jail diversion) from the inmate listing data into an easily readable format. 

The Sheriff’s Office recognizes the value of sharing this information, especially during the COVID19 pandemic that has resulted in unprecedented jail population fluctuations.
