Door and Kewaunee were among the 12 counties taking a closer look at their concerns about jail overcrowding at a forum held last month in Green Bay . Currently, Door and Kewaunee County rely on other facilities in the state when they have too many people or do not have the staff available to take in certain inmates like women and children. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says this is part of a broader conversation about the future of jails and the role they play in society.
According to Joski, the classification of inmates when they come in is another big reason why Kewaunee County has to rely on other facilities in the state.
