There is a distinction between "jails" and "prisons." Jail are operated locally, by cities and counties. Being primarily short term facilities, jails will hold inmates sentenced to terms of one year or less, and they are typically misdemeanants. Jails will also hold inmates awaiting trial on the local level. Prisons, on the other hand, are long term facilities run by federal or state governments (and often private companies). Prisons house convicted felons and inmates serving a term of more than one year. Below is a list of the 10 largest jails, by average inmate population, in North Dakota.
