National Jail Tour – Day 3

 

DAY 3  - April 22, 2021

 

South Dakota Sheriffs' Association Conference

Today Warren spent the morning finishing up at the South Dakota Sheriffs' Association Conference in Deadwood, SD, by cleaning up the NIJO booth in the exhibit hall and then attending some training taught by Tate McCotter, NIJO Executive Director. After the conference concluded, he took the time to visit Mount Rushmore--(which he was so glad he took the time to do!).  He then drove to Sioux Falls, SD.

5th Stop - Minnehaha County Jail (Sioux Falls, SD)

While at the NIJO Training at the SDSA conference, Warren had the opportunity to meet Warden Michael Mattson from the Minnehaha County Jail.  He was impressed when Warren told him about his National Jail Tour.  Since Warren wasn't planning on visiting the Minnehaha County Jail, he took the time to thank the Warden and told him to thank his staff for their dedication to the profession. Because Warden Mattson was so supportive of NIJO's mission to provide Legal-Based Guidelines to all county jails across South Dakota, Warren decided to surprise him by making a visit to the Minnehaha County Jail and leaving the NCO Week commemorative print on his desk for when he returns from  the conference in Deadwood!  (It sounds like Warren will end up seeing even more than 30 jails in 20 days!)

Warren reports that he's becoming a jailhouse foodie!  He's had lots of great meals on his trip so far--mentioning a great lunch in Gillette, WY, just a few blocks from their jail and then hitting a killer diner just a walk away from the Minnehaha jail last night.

6th Stop - Freeborn County Jail (Albert Lea, MN)

Although it was technically Day 4--we're adding this to today's travel log to show the extent Warren is going to make this jail visits.  At 0030 on April 23rd, Warren stopped into the Freeborn County Adult Detention Center in Albert Lea, MN.  Warren was able to meet Deputy Jail Sheriff Greg Jensen to thank him for his service and to present the facility with the commemorative NCO Week print.
