The Daviess/DeKalb Regional Jail is managed by a team of dedicated, well trained personnel that all have the same goal; provide a safe environment for staff to work and to house detainees securely.
Lori Burke was hired to fill the position of Administrative Assistant in November of 2015. She has ties to the Pattonsburg community and has become a valuable member of the Daviess/DeKalb Regional Jail team.
