Lake County Jail

The Lake County Jail has the capacity to hold 25 inmates. Besides housing our own inmates, we also take inmates from neighboring counties such as Cook and St. Louis County.

Visitation

Until further notice, there will be no visitation of inmates at the courthouse. Visitation will only be done between the jail facility and smartphone using the Reliance Connect app (Android and Apple App Store links below) between the hours of 0700-2300 any day of the week. There is a .25 per minute charge.

Jail Programs

The philosophy of the Lake County Jail Program Office is to develop and schedule programs that benefit both the inmates and the staff. Providing programs that keep the inmates busy doing positive things helps provide a safe and secure jail as well as benefiting the inmates. Currently the programs being offered are:

  • Weekly AA meetings
  • Weekly 12-Step Program for male inmates
  • Weekly Recovery Program for female inmates
  • Weekly Transitions Program for female inmates
  • Weekly Bible Study
  • Anger Management
