Work Release Information

Inmates that are "Work Release Authorized" upon sentencing from 64B District Court or 8th Circuit Court must complete a Work Release Application and submit it to the program coordinator for consideration prior to having their work release approved.

Please Note: To be considered for work release, your Court Sentencing Order must state "Work Release Authorized" and you must meet the Montcalm County Jail work release program guidelines to be eligible. Approval may take several days and is not guaranteed!

Applications should be completed and returned to the Montcalm County Jail prior to incarceration. If approved, this will expedite the process resulting in a minimum amount of lost work days.

Once incarcerated, approved work release candidates must pay their first week of work release and room and board prior to going out for work. A deposit of $115.50 must be made in the inmate's account.
