The Jackson County Community Corrections is overseen by the Jackson Sheriff's Department and consists of six community-based programs that supervise both pre-sentenced and post-sentenced offenders, prioritizing public safety and cost-effective alternatives to incarceration. Working in collaboration with the County's Work Release Center, located at 1101 W Main St Ste 101 Medford, OR, and other criminal justice agencies, the division oversees thousands of offenders in the community.

Adult Supervision Services consists of monitoring the behavior and movement of offenders in the community to ensure compliance with the conditions of the releasing authority.

Jackson County Community Justice currently employs 21 full time Parole/Probation Officers who supervise approximately 1750 felony offenders.

All Adult Parole/Probation Officers attend the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) Academy and are certified through the State of Oregon. A Parole/Probation Officer Duties include:

  • Conducting unscheduled / unannounced contacts with the offenders in their home environments, places of employment, and other community locations;
  • Conduct searches when indicated;
  • Conduct office visits.

Other duties include:

  • Gathering information from collateral sources;
  • Participating and being available to law enforcement agencies;
  • Being a physical presence in the community to aid in the deterrence of criminal conduct;
  • Being a resource to the community and enhancing public safety through community notification;
  • Reporting to the releasing authorities, to include the Courts, Parole Board and the Local Supervisory Authority;
  • Recommend appropriate sanctions and terminations.

The Adult Services Division has embraced Evidence Based Practices (EBP) in its mission to deliver supervision service to our offender population. Adult Services use detailed offender assessments, interactive motivational interviewing, and the use of appropriate sanctions and services to reduce risk and promote offender change.

Our field supervision caseload is divided and organized into specific supervision units that are further divided by geographic regions within the county.

Sex Offender Unit - Supervise sexual offenders in Jackson County through a nationally recognized model.

Domestic Violence Unit - Supervise offenders who have committed Domestic Violence crimes, in collaboration with treatment agencies and community partners.

Reduced Supervision Unit - Lower level supervision for offenders who pose less of a risk to re-offend.

Home Detention

Jackson County Community Justice’s Home Detention Program is a sentencing and sanctioning alternative which provides low risk offenders the opportunity to serve their jail sentence in the community, allowing them to continue their employment and/or treatment. Home Detention is a resource that can be used in lieu of jail incarceration for all sentenced criminal matters.

The Home Detention program requires the offender complete an application at which point an interview will be conducted to determine if the applicant is appropriate for this level of custody. Some, but not all of the factors that may disqualify an applicant from this program are:

  • Untreated sex offenses;
  • Past non-payment of program or supervision fees;
  • Past Home Detention Program failure;
  • Applicants on formal supervision without the approval of their probation officer;
  • No land line telephone or an inappropriate residence;
  • Failure to keep scheduled appointments and/or follow directives of Home Detention personnel;
  • Reporting for interview or start-up under the influence of alcohol or drugs;

Anyone who has been sentenced to the Jackson County Supervisory Authority can apply for Home Detention. Eligible offenders are monitored electronically for compliance with an ankle bracelet or a voice verification system. Strict guidelines are enforced as to the offenders whereabouts, prohibited activities and curfew.

This program is critical to providing sanctions for probation violations and court sentences as an alternative to Jail. It is the practice of Jackson County Community Justice to look for alternative sanctions that help to rehabilitate the offender and yet still maintain community safety.

Home Detention Fees:

A non-refundable $30.00 application fee is required of all applicants. If accepted into the program, the offender will be assessed a $30.00 per day monitoring fee (subject to change). Violation fee of $135.00.

Sentences less than 15 days require payment in full on the first day of the custody. Sentences of 15 days or more are subject to a payment plan designed by the Home Detention Community Justice Officer.

Home Detention Program Hours:

Monday thru Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

HMDT Conditions

Community Justice is an important balance of community safety, offender accountability and offender competency development. Balance in juvenile justice is achieved when all three components are addressed.

Changing criminal behavior is most effective with the use of evidenced-based practices and programs that cause offenders to take responsibility for their criminal behavior and for the harm they have done to victims.

Community Safety

Citizens have a right to live in a safe and healthy community and must be protected during the time an offender is under juvenile justice supervision. To assist with this supervision a range of interventions appropriate to the varying risks presented by offenders will be used. These interventions will focus on both appropriate responses to the present criminal behavior and to moving the offender toward healthy, pro-social community membership. Community safety cannot be achieved without meaningful accountability for the harms already caused and the transformation of criminal thinking and behavior for the prevention of future harms.


Criminal behavior affects and harms individuals and the community. Criminal behavior creates an obligation on the part of the offender to make amends to those they have harmed. The offender must meaningfully address this obligation through personal actions. Community Justice should ensure its resources are being directed toward holding offenders accountable for their criminal behavior and the harm they have caused. Offenders should be provided opportunities to make amends and repair the harm in ways that are meaningful to those impacted by the criminal behavior.

Accountability also involves the offender taking steps toward becoming a positive citizen. The community must play an active role in assisting this growth by providing opportunities for the integration of offenders into the fabric of the community as offenders take responsibility for their actions and seek to make amends.

Competency Development

Offenders should leave the justice system more capable of being positive, contributing members of the community than when they entered the system. Rather than simply receiving treatment and services aimed at suppressing problem behavior, offenders should make measurable improvements in their ability to function as productive, responsible citizens.

To assist offenders and their families a wide range of educational, skill building, treatment and intervention resources that are age, gender and culturally appropriate, and focus on evidence based practices and programming will be utilized.

Community Service

The Community Service Program is the longest running program in the department. The mission is to ensure that offenders are afforded the opportunity to complete community service obligations in a productive environment and provide meaningful restitution to the citizens of Jackson County. The Community Service Program is responsible for placement and monitoring of offenders who have been sentenced to perform community service work. Offenders can also work off fines, if agreed to by the court. Community Service is also used as a sanction by both the courts and the Parole/Probation officers.

Currently, there are approximately 25 work sites in Jackson County that are available for client placement if deemed appropriate. The Community Service program also offers a work crew that operates three days a week from the Community Justice building. The work crew offers assistance to other county departments with landscape maintenance and trash removal.

***All clients must meet with the Community Service Coordinator prior to beginning Community Service Hours

Work Site Rules:

Community Service Placement sites may impose a dress code that the offender is required to abide by. The sites may also impose additional rules / expectations that will be identified upon assignment and a
