Jail Information
About the Facility
The Washington County Jail is a 200-bed direct supervision facility that was opened in June of 1993. In addition to the jail commander and the assistant jail administrator, we have 63 correctional officers, 9 correctional sergeants, 5 full-time programs coordinators, 7 office support, 1 full-time nurse, 7 part-time nurses, and approximately 20 unpaid volunteers in various positions.

Our medical unit has a small dentist's office and several examination rooms. We have our own on-site laundry and a web based inmate canteen services. The laundry is staffed by 1 correctional officer and 5 to 8 inmate laborers. The laundry runs between 5-10 hours per day, depending on the amount of laundry that is generated by the inmates housed in our facility.

Jail FacilitiesPrograms
Some of the programs available at the Washington County Jail include GED, and other educational opportunities, chemical abuse counseling, library services, religious guidance, and recreational activities.

Our jail holds pre-trial, straight time (sentenced), Work release and STS (Sentence to Service) offenders and EHM (Electronic Home Monitoring). STS is a program that is court ordered so inmates can go out into the community to perform many service projects. The jail holds males, females and juveniles.

The Sheriff's Office also operates a 5-bed Juvenile Facility that is licensed by the State of Minnesota as an 8-day juvenile temporary holding facility.
