Why Are We Exploring an Improved Jail and Public Safety Center?

The purpose of the recent study was to determine long-term needs for the County Jail and Law

Enforcement Center to address service delivery for the next 20 years and beyond. The current jail is only classified by the Minnesota Department of Corrections as 72-hour holding facility and there is inadequate programming space, Dispatch and office space. Cook County is paying to house inmates in other counties and transporting them. The study provided recommendations to determine what is needed for a jail facility that would safely house detainees long-term. The study examined current practices and solicited feedback on what improvements, if any, were needed as the County considers a long-term holding facility. All parties agree that any expansion of jail operations should provide separate space for inmates with mental health or medical issues – something that does not currently exist.
