News from Sheriff Donald R. Bell

POLSON — On April 5, 2024, at around 7 p.m., two inmates in the Lake County Jail assaulted a Lake County detention officer and attempted escape after gaining control of the officer’s keys. The escape was prevented by another detention officer who was able to secure the inmates.  Additional deputies from the Sheriff’s Office and officers from the Polson Police Department responded to quell further disturbances in the jail and lock all inmates down. The offending inmates will not be identified at this time due to ongoing investigation and review for criminal charges by the County Attorney’s Office. This information will be forthcoming. The Sheriff’s Office would like to extend our gratitude to the Polson Police Department for their assistance.
