Becker County Sheriff's Office Mission Statement:
We, the men and women of the Becker County Sheriff's Office, are empowered to defend the Constitutions of the United States
and the State of Minnesota. We are dedicated to the protection of all we serve. We provide exceptional law enforcement services free from
prejudice or favor, with quality leadership, integrity and respect.
The Sheriff of Becker County is an elected official. The Sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer of the entire County.
The Sheriff or his deputies respond to all crime calls in the county; serves civil process papers involving civil disputes,
litigation, and family court; serves and executes arrest warrants and search warrants and transports prisoners.
The Sheriff's Office also has a Boat and Water Department that inspects boats of area resorts for current registration
and safety violations, patrols area lakes during the summer months and issues swim raft permits for special events held on area
lakes. The Boat and Water Department also heads up all search and rescue operations on the lakes, such as drownings, assisted
by the Becker County Dive Rescue Team.
The Sheriff's Office also has a Sheriff's Auxiliary which consists of members that are trained and licensed by the POST
Board that assist the Sheriff's Office and other law enforcement agencies within Becker County.
The Becker County Jail holds 48 inmates, either convicted or awaiting trial. Convicted inmates may be held in the jail up to
one year. Inmates from the City of Detroit Lakes and/or surrounding towns located in Becker County are housed at the jail.
The Jail has many alternatives to jail confinement. STS (Sentencing to Service) allows the inmates to work at a community
service job while staying at the residence at nights. Community service allows defendants to work off fines doing community
service in lieu of jail time. Work Release allows prisoners to work out of the jail in community based jobs. The Huber Act
allows inmates to go to their private jobs during the day and report back to jail at night.
The Dispatch/Communications section of the Becker County Sheriff's Office takes all incoming calls, answers 911 lines
from Detroit Lakes, Lake Park, Frazee, Callaway, Ogema, White Earth, Richwood, Osage, Two Inlets, and Pine Point. The Sheriff's
Office is also responsible for dispatching the volunteer fire departments from the aforementioned towns. They also dispatch
the Detroit Lakes Police Department, Essentia-St. Mary's EMS, First Responders, Game Wardens and other area police departments.
