Information as provided by Maricopa County Sheriff's Department and should not be considered legal advice.
A person who is not in custody and is ordered by the court to deliver themselves
to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) for confinement to serve a sentence as
ordered by the court will self surrender at a scheduled date and time.
You must report on the day and at the time ordered by the Court. If you report after
your court designated reporting time you may be refused intake. If this occurs you will
be required to return to the court for an amended order of confinement AND the
sentencing court will be notified that you reported late. You can not be accepted before
your designed reporting date and time. The jail accepts those who report for Self
Surrender seven days per week between the hours of 0600 and 2400.
You must bring the following items with you when you report to the jail:
The Confinement Order as issued by the court.
A government issued picture identification, such as a driver’s license.
A completed Medical Receiving Screening Questionnaire.
If you have prescription medication(s) that you must take, it must be in the original
pharmacy container with your name on it and a quantity sufficient for your stay in jail.
Any necessary medical device(s), such as C-PAP machine, prosthesis, etc.
If you fail to bring your confinement order or proper identification you may be refused
for intake. You will be required to return to the court for an amended order of
confinement for a later date / time. Do not confuse the court minute entries for the
Confinement Order, they are not the same. If you have been sentenced to fifteen days
or more of Work Release or Work Furlough you must have a Health Care Provider’s
Certification Form completed no more than ninety (90) days prior to your reporting.
This form will be given to you by the court at the time of your sentencing. A TB test is
required to be completed and takes a minimum of three (3) days to complete. Failure to
complete any portion of the form or failure to bring the form with you may cause you
to be removed from the Work Furlough / Work Release program and you will be kept
in full-custody for the duration of your sentence.
