Religious Head Coverings for Inmates

March 20, 2014 (MINNEAPOLIS) – The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office(HCSO) hosted a press conference today announcing the addition of a policy regarding religious head coverings for inmates.  Absent a threat to safety and security, individuals in custody will be allowed to wear a religious head covering while incarcerated at the Hennepin County Public Safety Facility.  Religious head coverings can include but are not limited to: a yarmulke, hijab, and kufi.

“This is an opportunity to be proactive rather than reactive,” said Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek. “I am extremely proud of our current efforts to recognize the religious rights and beliefs of all inmates; the addition of this policy enhances our efforts to be more culturally aware.”

HCSO’s religious head covering policy adheres to the constitutional and federal requirements of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA).   As a result of discussions with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), and subject matter experts on religion and corrections, HCSO is enacting a policy that is the first of its kind in the state of Minnesota.

Jail-issued religious head coverings are available upon intake for inmates arriving at the facility wearing a religious head covering.  Procedures are in place for inmates who did not enter the facility wearing a religious head covering but wish to make a formal request.  If the religious head covering is altered or used for anything other than its intended purpose, the inmate is subject to the loss of that privilege.

Historically, HCSO has accommodated religious head covering requests from inmates on a case by case basis.  HCSO currently accommodates inmates with specific religious needs such as adhering to religious dietary requirements, providing religious literature, and organizing religious leaders from a variety of different faiths who volunteer in the jail.
