Becker County Jail
Sheriff: Kelly Shannon
Jail Administrator: Randy Hodgson
Program Coordinator: Vivian Anderson
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.
