The Isanti County MN Jail is a detention center located at 509 18th Ave Southwest Cambridge, MN which is operated locally by the Isanti County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Isanti County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Cambridge Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement.

The Isanti County Jail and Work Release are parts of the Isanti County Sheriff's Office. Isanti County added on to the former jail that was built in 1984. In 2005 the addition was finished.

The former jail housed 39 prisoners. The new addition has the potential to house 112 prisoners. Isanti houses up to 20 out-of-county prisoners at a rate of $55.00 per day. The jail consists of male and female prisoners. They have medium security, maximum security, Work Release (the "Huber" and STS/Sentence to Serve units), and a kitchen.
