Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office closes Main Lobby and Jail Lobby to the public

Web posted March 24, 2020
Crow Wing County Sheriff Scott Goddard announces that the Law Enforcement Center’s main office and jail lobby areas will be closed to the public through March 31, 2020. Sheriff Goddard stated. “We will continue to serve our community with our focus on keeping our personnel safe and healthy so we can respond to calls for help in our community. Closing our front lobby and jail lobby will help limit the personal contact that we have with the public. We are looking for any and all ways we can limit our exposure while remaining ready to respond to help our residents.”

“I have been in law enforcement for a number of years, never before have I seen a local, state and national response to what we are currently facing. In times like this, we will show that we are Minnesota nice and look out for all of those who live and visit where we are blessed to call home. Please take the time to call and check in on those who are in need of basic supplies or suffer from health issues and do your part to practice proper hygiene, maintain social distance guidelines and stay home if you are not feeling well. We will get through this and I pray that we find ourselves better for the challenges that we face.”

The public should call 911 for emergencies. For non-emergency related issues, please contact the Sheriff’s Office by phone at 218-829-4749.

Crow Wing County Community Services to Modify Service to Residents

Web posted March 24, 2020
Crow Wing County Community Services remains open to provide services, yet access to our building and in-person services will not be available.

In the interest of health and safety of our clients and our staff, Crow Wing County Community Services is taking additional immediate measures to help reduce the rate of transmission by limiting opportunities for exposure.

“Social Distancing” is the most effective method to accomplish this. While Community Services will remain open to provide necessary services to county residents, buildings and offices will be closed to the public and services will be accessible by phone or online only.

Starting, Tuesday, March 17th through Tuesday, March 31st you may call our office at 218- 824-1250 and your call will be directed to the appropriate service area. You may also visit our website online at www.crowwing.us to access online services and applications. Completed applications and documentation may be emailed to cwcss@crowwing.us or dropped off at the drop box located outside of the Community Services Building at 204 Laurel Street, Brainerd.

This is subject to change and will be updated as additional decisions are made.
