Mission

It is the mission of the Clatsop County Detention Center to provide a safe and secure institution that conforms to Oregon Revised Statutes for the incarceration of the pre-adjudicated and sentenced offenders as mandated by the courts. The correctional facility will classify and house offenders for the maximum protection of staff and inmates, while attempting to release the inmate back into the community safely. The facility will maintain an institutional climate so that every inmate may complete his/her term of confinement with a minimum of corrosive effect and a maximum gain in ability to more adequately maintain a successful community adjustment following release.
