One fun fact about the Commonwealth of Washington is nearly the only single state in the union that will elect their County Jailer as the bi-partisan constitutional officer. This means that Washington is the single only state that will elect their jailer the same way as the state elects their sheriff and other various officials.
In return for their work, they can shave off a few days from their sentence. While inmates are serving their time out in the Pierce County Juvenile Detention Facility, they can work throughout the jail such as laundry personnel or a kitchen staff member.
The Pierce County Juvenile Detention Facility is a medium-security facility. The juvenile inmates are housed in a separate facility in the county. The facility will house adult female and adult male inmates. The facility does not house any juvenile inmates.
The inmates who are not released will have their own bed and be allotted three meals a day.
The Pierce County Juvenile Detention Facility receives new inmates to the jail daily. 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.
Majority of the inmates that are already sentenced have sentences less than two years. The Pierce County Juvenile Detention Facility accepts inmates from surrounding municipalities and towns. They also accept inmates from the Tacoma Police Department, as they do not have their own long-term lock-up facility.
