Usually, the accident report can be released when it's completed and approved by a Supervisor (in about 10-14 days).

Q:  How do I find out what is going on or who is assigned a case?
A:  Contact the Patrol Deputy who initially handled your complaint to find out who your case is assigned to and they will refer you to the correct Detective or Deputy assigned. If it is a criminal investigation, you may contact the Lieutenant who coordinates Detective investigations. If you know the Deputy or Detective assigned, you may email that person directly. (See "Personnel" for email address.)

Q:  How do I make a compliment or file a complaint about a Sheriff's Department employee?
A:  You may call the Department and ask to speak to one of the Administrators (Lieutenants, Chief Deputy or Sheriff). If an Administrator is not in the office, you may send a message to any of them by email or phone. (See "Personnel" for email address.)


Jail Related Questions

Q:  How do I find out if someone is in Jail?
A:  You may call 608-328-9598 or the Communication Center at 608-328-9400. The Green County Jail is located at 2827 6th Street, Monroe, WI. The Jail houses maximum security prisoners who are awaiting trial or who do not have work release privileges, medium security prisoners, and minimum security prisoners sentenced with Huber Law/Work Release. In addition, the Jail is the booking facility for processing prisoners into Jail, and is the centralized location for releases from the Jail facilities.

Q:  How can I leave a telephone message for a prisoner?
A:  We do not accept routine telephone messages for any of the prisoners. If you have an emergency message (death in the family, major illness) which can be verified, we will make every effort to pass the message on. All calls out of the Jail are billed "collect".

Q:  What are the visiting hours?
A:  Prisoners have an opportunity to designate up to eight (8) visitors. Your name must be on the prisoner visiting list. You must have paper identification (valid driver's license with photo, state picture identification card or a passport). The Jail will not accept a birth certificate as a valid form of ID. The following is the visiting schedule:....

Q:  How can I pick up or drop off property for a prisoner?
A:  Prisoner property in the Green County Jail is kept at the Jail located at 2827 6th Street and you need to appear in person. Be prepared to wait since all property releases must be authorized by the prisoner before we can release it. It is best if you can notify the prisoner ahead of time so that the prisoner can have the proper paperwork ready before you come. If needed, money and small amounts of clothing are accepted for the prisoners. A property receipt for money and clothing MUST be filled out by you. These property receipts are located in the Green County Sheriff's Department lobby.

Q:  How can I write to my friend or relative in Jail?
A:  You can write to a prisoner as often as you like. Correspondence must contain your full name and complete address. If it does not contain your full name and address, mail will not be accepted and will be returned to you or the post office. Your correspondence must also contain the prisoner's full name, PO Box 473, Monroe, WI 53566. We do not accept packages for prisoners. Mail can be sent in envelopes no larger than 10" x 13". The following is allowed: letters, correspondence, money orders, and photos which are no larger than 3" x 5". No Polaroid photos, stamps, or pornography or nude photos are allowed. Any envelope exceeding a 10" x 13" size or any envelope appearing to contain nonacceptable items will be returned to the sender or post office at sender's expense. This includes Federal Express and U.S. Post Office overnight mail. Prisoner mail is opened and searched for contraband prior to distribution to the prisoner. The Jail does not accept hand-delivered mail. All mail must be processed through the U.S. Postal Service.

Q:  What happens when a prisoner goes to Court?
A:  Prisoners who have recent arrests will be housed in the Green County Jail until they go to their Initial Court Appearance (Arraignment) hearing in Court. Their Court appearance is based on how quickly the District Attorney's Office is able to draft the complaint and schedule them for Court (usually within one to four days). Jail staff do not set the time for Court appearances. Prisoners booked into Jail on warrants will go to Court as the Court schedule time permits. We respond to telephone calls regarding dispositions of Court appearances on weeknights after 6:00 p.m. Call the Jail at (608)328-9598 or, if no answer, call the Communication Center at (608)328-9400.

Q:  How is a prisoner's money handled?
A:  Prisoners have individual cash/commissary accounts. These accounts are used for the prisoner to order items from commissary service and for all money transactions. Only cash or money orders are accepted for prisoners.

Q:  How to put money in an inmate's account...
A:  1) Come to Jail in person and put money in kiosk (cash or credit). There is a $2 fee for any cash amount that is put in the kiosk. If you are using a credit card to put money in someone's accout or posting bond, there is a 10% fee of the total amount; minimum charge of $2.50. 2) Mail money in via the USPS. 3) Go to www.JailATM.com, create an account and follow instructions.
