The Jefferson County Jail provides for incarceration of persons pre-trial and post-trial. We also offer alternatives to jail incarceration. The programs offered are a work release program and a work crew program.


PREA is intended to address the detection, prevention, reduction and prosecution of sexual harassment and sexual assault in all corrections facilities in the country. The Jefferson County Jail has implemented a zero-tolerance policy relating to sexual violence in custody, and recognizes offenders who are sexually harassed or abused as victims of a serious crime. The department immediately responds to allegations, fully investigates all reported incidents, pursues disciplinary action, and refers those who perpetrate such conduct for investigation and prosecution.
If you have information of a PREA violation within the Jefferson County Jail you can report it by calling the PREA Hotline at 360-344-9770 or you can email the PREA Hotline at Both the Hot Line Phone Number and the Hotline Email will be checked Monday through Friday 6:00 am through 5:00 pm excluding holidays.
Please leave as much information as possible so we can investigate the allegation as thoroughly as possible to include but not limited to "Who, What, Where, When, How, Why".
