Reporting to Jail
When to ReportThe court will inform you at your sentencing of the date and time you must report. If you are not informed, or forget, contact Court Administration at (218) 824-1310, as the jail does not always have the paperwork prior to your report date. You are expected to report to jail on time and not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you fail to report on time or are under the influence of intoxicants, you will be subject to loss of STS and Work Release privileges.
If You Have a Problem With Your Report Date or Time Jail staff or court personnel cannot change your report date or time. Only the sentencing judge can make this change. To request a change, your attorney must bring a formal motion before the sentencing judge.
Where to Report
The jail is located at 313 Laurel Street, Brainerd, Minnesota. Report to the north door labeled "Inmate Release and Return". Press the intercom button inside the lobby to notify jail staff you are reporting.
Fees You May be Required to PayAll inmates are charged a $25 booking fee. This fee will be charged to your inmate account when you are booked in. All sentenced Crow Wing County inmates will be charged a $25 Pay for Stay fee for each day in custody. These charges will accrue and you will be billed upon your release. With Pay for Stay in effect, there is not an additional daily Work Release fee, however, Work Release inmates must stay current on the $175 weekly fee and will not be billed upon release.
Sentenced inmates who will be in jail for 14 days or more must have a Mantoux (tuberculosis) test. The cost of the test is $10.
If you are participating in Work Release or STS, you are required to pay $40 for a drug screen, up front and each time you are requested to submit to testing.
