Programs & Services

The Goodhue County Adult Detention Center Program office will provide a comprehensive and elaborate design of programs and services designed to help detainees develop the tools necessary for positive lifestyle changes.


By implementing specific programs and services, the Goodhue County Adult Detention Center shall contribute to the reduction of offender recidivism by utilizing the time that detainees spend incarcerated to help educate and develop skills for a more positive reintegration into society.


After classification, programs staff will conduct a detainee assessment interview where the detainee needs will be addressed. Detainees will then receive information on available programs and services and a review of recommendations and options. Detainees will then have the opportunity to attend and participate in programs and services that yield therapeutic, educational, recreational and re-directional latitude in order to meet those needs and to achieve specific goals.

Programs Staff

Programs Director Justin Heiden and Assistant Programs Director Tabatha Manke and approx 50 volunteers and facilitators staff the Detention Center Programs and Services Office. Their main responsibilities are to research, develop, organize, schedule, maintain and supervise the detainee programs and services taking place in the facility.

A Self Supported System

Other than the programs staff employed by Goodhue County, the programs and services department is fully self supported and funded through revenues that are collected from the detainees themselves through our commissary vending services, phone call commissions and sale of pre-paid phone call cards. We average annual revenues in excess of $85,000 through these services. Tax payer dollars are not used. Additionally, the programs and services office utilizes mostly volunteers to facilitate the programs offered. Very few are paid for services.
