The Stutsman County Correctional Center (SCCC) opened in 1986 with an initial capacity of 44 inmates. After several adjustments and the addition of double bunking, the facility has a capacity of 96 inmates. The Correctional Center is a Class One Jail and houses sentenced and non-sentenced adult men and women. The SCCC also contracts with the Federal Government and surrounding counties for housing. It manages an Attendant Care / Safe Bed program providing at-risk youth short-term housing. The Correctional Center has 28 employees, and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Chad Jackson was hired as the Jail Administrator in March, 2014. Darin Goter is Deputy Administrator. The operations of the Correctional Center are mandated by the Governing Authority Board, which is comprised of two County Commissioners, two City Council members and a citizen at large. The board meets monthly in the Stutsman County Commission Room located in the Courthouse.
