As a precautionary measure, the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office has made the decision to keep its business lobby closed to the public for the time being. This will include inmate visitation and extracurricular activities. The intention of this closure is precautionary out of consideration for the safety and health of our staff, visitors, and inmates.

The Sheriff’s Office will continue to operate and provide services to the community. Citizens are being asked to contact our office via phone, email, and by utilizing online services and forms. Visit the county website at for contact information, Concealed Weapons Permit applications, and Notice to Quit and Vacate paperwork.

Please utilize the lockbox in our east entry way for dropping off inmate money, 24/7 fees, or paying jail costs. To arrange property pickup or drop off, please contact the Detention Center.

Our office has resumed fingerprint services by appointment only. Appointments will be made in 30-minute intervals so as to not have people congregate in the waiting area and to allow time for additional sanitary precautions between appointments. If you have your own mask to wear, we strongly encourage you to wear it during your appointment. Cloth masks are acceptable.

There is a $10 fee to be fingerprinted, we accept cash, check, or money order. Please bring exact change, some form of identification, and your fingerprint cards.

For enhanced concealed weapons permits please review the hand out you received from your concealed weapons course and be sure you have the following with you: your certificate, a check or money order for $43.25 made out to DCI, your fingerprint cards, and some form of identification.

Fingerprinting will be scheduled for Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
