The Petersburg Community Jail is a medium-security facility. The Detention Center only holds adults, both female, and male.
All inmates in the facility will have access to showers, three meals a day, and medical care.
The Petersburg Community Jail has a commissary. Even though they supply the inmates with their necessary items, if an inmate wishes to purchase something that the facility does not give them, they can do so here. An inmate will have the chance to purchase food among other special treats. The commissary is offered in the facility twice a week.
The main mission of the detention center is to provide many services along with necessary operations not only for the protection of the community, but also to provide a safe and humane environment for the staff working inside the Petersburg Community Jail. The Petersburg Community Jail is a medium-security facility. The facility also wants to maintain respect for all inmates in their custody.
These inmates are currently not convicted on any criminal offense, but they either were denied bond or could not post bond. Majority of the inmates that are housed in the Petersburg Community Jail are waiting for their trial or they are in their pre-trial phase.
The facility runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by the Wrangell-Petersburg Census Area County Sheriff’s Office. All staff members attend the Alaska Law Enforcement Academy to learn all of the latest and greatest techniques when dealing with the inmates. All staff members are First Aid and CPR certified as well.
