The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency responsible for operated and managing the Elmwood Womens Facility.
The Elmwood Womens Facility houses both adult female and adult male inmates. The facility comes equipped with their very own kitchen that makes nearly over 200,000 meals every year for their inmates, a laundry facility, and even medical offices to treat their inmates when needed.
Mark Burns, Lieutenant has been the Elmwood Womens Facility commander over the last 10 years. The facility was built back in 2015.
Inmates who gain the trust of the correctional officers will have the opportunity to earn a little bit of money by working as laundry personnel, a cook, orderly, or in the commissary. This can also shave a few days off their sentence for good behavior.
The Elmwood Womens Facility also accepts inmates from other law enforcement agencies from the local, state, and even federal level. The Elmwood Womens Facility typically takes all of the Milpitas Police Departments arrestees as they do not have their own longer-term lockup facility. Most of the time, these inmates come from an overcrowded facility or they have a court appearance in the area. Not all inmates in this facility are residents of Santa Clara County.
The Sheriff’s Office main mission is to try and reduce the inmate population by providing them with proactive, yet innovative release programs to help them not re-offend again. Some of these release programs include a court-sponsored pretrial release alongside community-based work programs that are operated through the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. In 2017, the Elmwood Womens Facility has a daily inmate population around 1085.
