The Kanabec County Jail includes laundry service, food service, inmate programs, medical services, a dispatch center, and jail administration offices. The project incorporates a combined dispatch emergency/911 and jail central control function to increase staffing efficiencies for the County and employs the newest security technology. The jail consists of 100 beds, with 9 segregation units capable of handling a large diversity of inmates. A 330' tunnel linking the new jail to the existing courthouse enables secure and discreet transfer of inmates between the two buildings.

There is a shelled space for another 28 cells or 56 inmates which would become a direct supervised pod. The building also has a shelled space that is flexible for future expansion of the general offices, the secure jail support operations, or a combination of the two.

The design team won a Pyramid Award from the Minnesota and North Dakota Chapters of the Associated Builder and Contractors (ABC) in the Exterior - Masonry, Precast or Stone category. This regional award was received due to a unique use of precast concrete panels which were designed to.
