Schedule Jail Time

Scheduling Work Release Jail Time

Effective January 2023, all individuals ordered by the Courts to participate in Work Release who are 1) authorized for the GPS electronic monitoring program to work under home confinement or 2) those with documented medical exemptions authorized to serve time under the GPS electronic monitoring program or 3) those directed by the Courts to serve their time at the jail (in-custody). Scheduling a surrender date and the required work release interview will be done by contacting the Linn County Correctional Center (LCCC) at 319-892-6300.

Scheduling Jail Time (Not Work Release)

Pursuant to Linn County court orders, anyone ordered to schedule time in the Linn County Correctional Center that isn't work release must call the Finance Division at 319-892-6232 or present themselves in person to the Sheriff’s Office Finance Division (310 2nd Avenue SW, Cedar Rapids, IA). This must occur within 15 calendar days of the court order. Failure to schedule within 15 days of the court order will result in a warrant. Any court order outside of Linn County will require contact with the Correctional Center at 319-892-6300 for review.

Upon conviction of a crime, and pursuant to state law, persons sentenced to serve time in the Linn County Correctional Center are required to pay $60.00 per day.

Monthly Room and Board payments can be made online (minimum $50), automatic debit/credit (minimum $25), or pay in person at the Sheriff’s Office. We accept cash, money order, Mastercard, Visa, and Discover Cards. 

If you missed your scheduled surrender date, a warrant will be issued for your arrest. To resolve this, you can turn yourself in immediately and begin serving your court ordered sentence or contact your attorney. You will not be able to reschedule your sentence once a warrant has been issued without an amended court order. 

If you cannot surrender at your scheduled time, you must call the Finance Division at 319-892-6232 or present yourself in person prior to your schedule date (310 2nd Avenue SW; Cedar Rapids, IA). In rare cases, the scheduled date or time can be amended, but will require a 48-hour notice.
