The Rice County Jail is led by the jail administrator, assistant jail administrator, jail program assistant, three sergeants and 21 correctional officers spread out over two facilities with a potential 71-bed capacity.
Correctional officers also assist with transportation of prisoners and courthouse security.
Construction of a Rice County Public Safety Center, which will include a 76-bed jail, is underway. The facility, on Hwy 3 on Faribault's northern edge, is expected to open in fall 2024. Learn more about the project here.
