To accomplish our mission statement, we will systematically:

• Accurately identify all individuals that enter the jail
• Assess individuals utilizing the risk/need principle
• Provide a safe and secure environment in accordance with recognized standards and regulations.
• Consistently reinforce appropriate behavior and discipline inappropriate behavior
• Provide research-based programming designed to reduce criminal behavior
• Aid individuals in getting re-engaged in the community through our volunteer program
• Provide meaningful work opportunities designed to increase the employability of inmates

Additionally, we are committed to continue to employ dedicated, professional staff members, provide relevant training to those individuals, and consistently provide an environment where staff will develop to their fullest potential.

Everyday, on every shift, in every position, we will, both individually and as an organization, strive for excellence.
