Electronic Home Detention and Work Release

Application Process
If you have a jail commitment and the Judge has checked one or more of the boxes for EHD or Work Release you are required to obtain the corresponding application by either downloading (see below) or picking up in person at the jail (see Finding the Jail). Completely fill out and turn the application in to the Kirkland Jail at least seven (7) days before your date of commitment assigned by the court. Failure to turn in a completed application to the jail within this time will be an automatic disqualification to either or both of the programs.

Completed applications can be turned in at the jail, to the jail fax at 425-587-3463, or by email attachment to CorrectionsSupervisors@kirklandwa.govlinks to external site. It is your responsibility to make sure the jail successfully received your paperwork.

The EHD and Work Release programs are available to male and female offenders and costs are involved with both programs. If the judge has checked the EHD and/or Work Release box this DOES NOT mean that you are automatically qualified for the program. It simply means that the court is allowing alternatives to jail if it is approved by the Kirkland Jail.
