Huber Booking:

  • You may not report to start your sentence with any intoxicating substance in your system.
  • You are required to report on the day and time designated by the Judge, with your Drivers License/State I.D. and your Social Security Card.
  • You will be required to submit to a Breathalyzer (P.B.T.) upon reporting in, and a Urine Analysis (U.A.) randomly after reporting in. If the result is positive, you will be charged for the screenings. Failure to comply with any of these requirements is a violation of the Jail rules and will subject you to disciplinary action or revocation of your Huber privileges by the Judge.
  • You may not bring tools, box cutters and any other type of sharp objects or cell phones into the locker room or jail proper. You are encouraged to keep them at your place of employment or vehicle if possible. Locks and lockers may be purchased through the accountant for storing these items outside of the actual Jail.

Sentenced prisoners are responsible for all of their medical costs incurred while in custody. The Jail will assist you with your medical concerns, but you maintain responsibility for all costs incurred. (Wisconsin State Statute 53.38).

Electronic Devices will not be allowed in the jail. This includes cell phones, I-pods, cameras, video recorders or any other similar devices. All devices will be secured in their property in the property room or the Huber Lockers located in the hallway across from the accountant’s office.

Hubers will be released in time for work on their last day of incarceration unless some type of disciplinary action has been taken or you have charges pending. Non-working hubers and straight time inmates will be released at 8:30am.
Individuals being released by court order and/or Intake Court Hearing will be released as soon as possible.

All individuals being released can be picked up in front of the Jail located on 500 N Schmidt Rd.
