Certain fish and game violations may include jail time. If you are required to report to jail, the following instructions will help you.

 

  • Bring your copy of the court paperwork – usually your probation or sentencing order.
  • Wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothing.
  • If you are reporting on a Friday night, you may want to come in earlier in the day to avoid the rush.
  • If, for some emergency reason, you cannot report on your designated date, call the jail at 538-7471 and press 0.
  • In case of illness, call the above number and come in the following day with a written medical excuse from a medical doctor.
  • Do not bring any personal property.  This includes jewelry (plain wedding bands are allowed), books or cash. Any cash over a dollar will be returned to you with a check.
  • Lockers are available in the main lobby for 25 cents (quarters only).
  • Prearrange your ride home. You may want to bring a bus ticket or be prepared to place a collect call.
