All individuals received at the Isabella County Jail will go through the booking
process. During this procedure, you will have your personal possessions
collected, inventoried and bagged for storage. Your money will be inventoried
and placed in your inmate account. If you have been lodged on current local
charges, or lodged because of a violation of the court, or previous charges, you
will be arraigned in accordance with court procedures. You will be
photographed and fingerprinted. After completion of the above items, you will
be classified, issued jail clothing, a wristband, strip-searched and moved into
general population. Your wristband must be worn at all times or disciplinary
actions will be taken. You will be advised of the charge(s) against you and you
will be provided with information relative to your bond status and commitment.
General Regulations Governing the Supervision and Conduct of Inmates:
Lights will be turned on at 6:00am each morning and turned off at approximately
10:00pm each night. Inmates will get up and make their own bed. Bedding is to
be laid completely flat on the bed. It cannot be folded up or rolled at one end for
use as a pillow. Televisions may be turned on no earlier than 6:00 am and must
be turned off by midnight unless otherwise directed by the officer in charge.
Inmates are allowed to lie on top of their beds, but are not allowed to get under
the covers until after the nighttime headcount and the evening medications have
been passed out. Failing to get up and make your bed or failing to turn off the
television as directed will result in disciplinary action.
