History

The current St. Croix County jail was built in 1993. It has six housing units that can house 168 inmates. It has a work release unit that was finished in 2004.

Sheriff Harry Harris of St. Croix County was traveling by train Elroy, Wisconsin to get a suspect for a robbery in his county. While on the train, he saw a suspect for another crime. He approached the man to question him, at which time the man pulled a pistol and shot Harris three times. The man was wanted for the killing a police officer in Montana. The man was later in Illinois when the mayor of the town he is was in and a constable went to serve a warrant. He killed the mayor. During that investigation, he was found out to be the killer of Sheriff Harris on June 18, 1904. He died serving a life sentence in prison.

Traffic officer Lee Murphy and Traffic officer Harry Dieltz pulled over a suspect in an armed robbery on June 14, 1953. The man opened fire on Murphy and sped off. Murphy and Dieltz pursued, though Murphy was injured. Hudson police officer Clarence Erickson joined in on the chase. The suspect slammed into a concrete wall. He shot Erickson to death and attempted to flee in the Hudson patrol car. Murphy and Dieltz shot him to death during this. Murphy spent the next two years having surgeries, even suffering a stroke. He finally died from his injuries on June 22, 1955.

In 2016, the St. Croix Sheriff's Department was touched by some of the sex scandals that were affecting the police departments in the county. A man who had been a deputy, process server, and court services officer and a woman who was a law enforcement clerk was caught having sex in the courthouse. They both resigned.

During the start of the Prohibition era in the United States, St. Croix was known to be a hotbed for making illegal liquor for the Minneapolis and St. Paul. The sheriff's department had the entire county to search for stills. The local makers and runners decided to stop when it was found out that Al Capone was taking over the Twin Cities. They did not wish to cross or work with the notorious gangster.
