The Linn County Correctional Center is located on Mays Island directly behind the Linn County Courthouse, on the 3rd Avenue Bridge in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Since there is no public parking located behind the Linn County Courthouse, you will want to park on the 3rd Avenue Bridge (an eastbound one-way street, with parking meters).
The Linn County Correctional Center is a 401-bed facility and is the only jail in Linn County. The Correctional Center houses inmates awaiting trial and serving time for state, county, and municipal offenses. Additionally, the Correctional Center houses overflow inmates for other jurisdictions and federal prisoners awaiting trial.
Inmates serving time and other jurisdictions housing inmates in the Linn County Correctional Center pay Linn County $60 per day, per inmate. The Federal government pays Linn County $64.70 per day, per inmate. In FY17, the Correctional Center took in $3,694,232 in inmate revenue.
FY17, staff booked 10,208 inmates into the Correctional Center with an average daily inmate population of 348 inmates.
The Correctional Center Division is also responsible for prisoner transportation functions and courthouse security (in both the main courthouse and the Juvenile Justice Center).
