The Multnomah County Detention Center mission is to provide a safe and secure facility for both inmates and the staff. The facility is a medium security correctional facility.
This facility operates on a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week. The Multnomah County Detention Center is a medium security facility. This facility is home to both adult female and adult male inmates.
One fun fact about the Commonwealth of Oregon is nearly the only single state in the union that will elect their County Jailer as the bi-partisan constitutional officer. This means that Oregon is the single only state that will elect their jailer the same way as the state elects their sheriff and other various officials.
This job will pay a small salary and even could shave a few days off their sentence. The inmates here in the Multnomah County Detention Center will have access to a number of programs, services, and resources. Many programs target their education, substance abuse classes, and even religious services. Inmates will even have a chance (with good behavior) to hold a job within the facility. These programs, services, and resources are put in place to help the inmate improve upon themselves, so they are less likely to re-offend in the future.
While inmates are serving their time out in the Multnomah County Detention Center, they can work throughout the jail such as laundry personnel or a kitchen staff member. In return for their hard work, they can shave off a few days from their overall sentence.
Inmates are released when they post bail, placed under probation, or on their own recognizance. While new inmates are coming in, there are also inmates leaving as well. The Multnomah County Detention Center receives new inmates to the jail daily.
