Precaution for the Covid-19 Pandemic

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is doing its part in preparing and taking precautions in regards to the Covid-19 pandemic. Currently the Polk County Jail has cancelled all programs and classes inside the facility. The cleaning and sanitation procedures of the facility has aggressively increased.  In addition, all persons that are being presented to the Polk County Jail for booking are being screened with the guidance of the Polk County Health Department.

Although the jail lobby is still currently open, we encourage all visitors to use an off-site location while utilizing the iWeb visit service.

We will continue to monitor the situation and make necessary changes as they arise. No further information is available at this time.
