Mission Statement:

The mission of the Becker County Jail is to serve and protect ensuring a safe environment to those who live, work and recreate in Becker County by providing for the care, custody and control of inmates remanded to its facilities, and by assisting these inmates in their preparation for the release as civil and productive citizens without regard to religion, color, sex or nationality.

The Jail will maintain a secure environment and sustain constitutional conditions of confinement in ways that are efficient, effective and promote growth and development.

The Becker County Jail operates two local facilities for adults. The Maximum Security facility is for those who are held primarily pending sentencing and for females remanded to our custody to serve sentences ranging from one day through one year.

The Minimum Security is for males who have been remanded to our custody to serve sentences ranging from one day through one year; and state S.T.S. and Work Release workers serving out the rest of their prison sentence for reintegration back into society.
