  • You need a case or warrant number to receive information over the phone.
  • If you don’t have a case or warrant number, have the full name and date of birth and call district court at 612-348-2040.
  • If you aren’t sure if you have a warrant, or to turn yourself in on a warrant, visit the public safety facility. You'll go through weapons screening.

Posting cash bail

You can post cash bail or bond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at the public safety facility. You’ll go through weapons screening.

  • You must have the exact amount. 
  • There is no cash machine on site.
