Instructions for Reporting to Jail

  • The defendant must report between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M. on the date specified by the court. Failure to do so may result in a warrant for your arrest and/or a petition to revoke your suspended time.
  • The defendant must bring photo identification and a copy of the court judgment with him/her and present them to the Booking Officer upon arrival.
  • The defendant must be drug and alcohol free. All admissions must complete a field sobriety test. Anyone found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be isolated and kept under close observation. Anyone who appears to be significantly impaired due to drugs or alcohol may be sent to the hospital for medical clearance and is subject to being held accountable for the costs of this process.
  • The defendant should bring only the clothes they are wearing and will need upon release. You will NOT be allowed access to your property while you are incarcerated as it will be sealed and stored away until your release. Do NOT bring the following items with you when reporting:

    • Any tobacco, tobacco products, tobacco or drug paraphernalia, illegal substances, and/or other contraband. They will be confiscated and destroyed or turned over to the police as appropriate. Possession and introduction of certain contraband could result in additional charges being made.
