Effective immediately the Island County Jail Visitation Program has been cancelled until further notice. This decision was not made lightly but in following recommendations by the Health Department and CDC we are trying to help mitigate the spread of Covid-19 within the facility. Inmate visitation with the general public will be reviewed on a daily basis until this restriction is removed.
The Island County Sheriff’s Department’s Corrections Division is dedicated to providing a safe and secure facility for those entrusted to our care. It is ingrained in our departmental character to uphold the law and is professionally delivered with the utmost integrity. We remain ever diligent to the citizens of the County of Island with the confidence our staff remain professional in the performance of their duties and vigilant in their efforts to safeguard the community.
The Jail was remodeled with additional space in 1983 and is a traditional linear style (cell block and dormitory) facility which houses both sentenced and pre-trial maximum security inmates. The Jail is designed to house up to 58 inmates at any given time.
Inmates have access to outdoor recreation, mail, commissary purchases (minor grocery store food items and sundries), and special programs. Inmates also receive medical, mental health, and dental care. Religious services, and some offender change programs are also offered. Public visiting is also available on a rotational basis, please review our Visiting Protocols page for more information. Sentenced inmates may be eligible to perform work in the facility kitchen or custodial crews and receive “work-time” credits to reduce their sentences. Eligible inmates may qualify for the Community Work Program or Electronic Monitoring Program.
