Jail & Annex FAQs


Work Detail is a unique program offered to inmates in Clay County.  It was developed by the Sheriff's Office during the spring flood of 1997.  It utilizes unsentenced inmates who are not a safety and security threat, to perform community work.  This detail is supervised at all times by a Clay County Correctional Officer who has a part time peace officer license.  The Work Detail typically works for local churches, schools, and communities in Clay County.

Work Release is a program offered to sentenced inmates who are not a safety and security threat to the community.  This program allows individuals to be productive members of society by continuing to work in their jobs.  They require no supervision while they are at work. 

Sentence to Service is a work program offered by Clay County and the State of Minnesota.  It utilizes those inmates who may not qualify for Work Release.  The work they perform is primarily for the local Department of Natural Resources.  These individuals are supervised by a State employee. 

Reintegration Advance Planning (RAP) is a re-entry program for inmates.  Our goal is to reduce recidivism and improve quality of life for the inmate through successful and comprehensive reintegration while assuring public safety.

The Jail and Annex also offer Alcoholic Anonymous meetings, Narcotic Anonymous meetings, and church services. 

Note:  All money dropped off for an inmate will be used for any fees that inmate owes prior to being available for Commissary items and phone cards.
