Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. King County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Seattle Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Washington here.

KCCF is situated in the downtown area next to the courthouse connected by a long elevated corridor to safely transfer inmates to their court appearance. The detention center is down the street from the Century Link Stadium used by the Seattle Seahawks of the NFL.

Basic Education Classes are available to both men and women, who have not completed high school diplomacy and or GED course requirements. 6 Instructors and 20 tutors are inspired to “build bridges to break down barriers,” as they commit to inspiring, motivating, encouraging and supporting inmates through a process of literacy, learning, achieving and accomplishing educational outcomes.
