The Lincoln County OR Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 251 W Olive St Newport, OR which is operated locally by the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Lincoln County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Newport Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

PROGRAMS: Sometimes special seminars are offered and will be announced or posted in the pod. You may not start a seminar late (after it has already run ½ day, etc.). You may quit a seminar, but once you quit you may not return.

BECOMING AN INMATE WORKER 1. Send an inmate worker application request on the kiosk. 2. Requirements to be a worker: a) Be sentenced and eligible to earn work time, or wish to volunteer. Inmates who volunteer do so knowing they will receive no time off at all for their work. b) Demonstrate good behavior prior to applying. This means having no major violations for two weeks and no more than two major violations during your present incarceration time. Good behavior also includes having no more than five coaching memos, verbal warnings or minor violations combined (during the past two weeks), and no more than ten coaching memos, verbal warnings or minor violations during your present incarceration time. c) Inmates on any type of segregation are not eligible to work. d) Your criminal history will be considered. Some work assignment restrictions may be imposed. e) You will be required to undergo a physical exam. Medical will notify corrections staff if you are not medically acceptable to be an inmate worker. They will set any limitations needed on your work such as lifting, serving food, or standing for long periods of time. f) If you have more than the allowed number of violations listed above, the requirement may be waived by administrative decision. 3. Your application will be reviewed, including your behavior, attitude, criminal history, current charge(s) and any hold(s). A supervisor may deny your application if they feel you do not meet the requirements. 4. You will not be cleared to be a worker if you take chronic pain meds. 5. Realize that because you have submitted an application does not guarantee you a position as an inmate worker, nor does the fact that you may be sentenced and eligible to earn work time. This is strictly an administrative decision, and not a right or entitlement.

COMMISSARY: Sales, refunds, limits and restrictions are set by the commissary vendor in conjunction with jail administration. You will be charged a fee for the incoming commissary pack and other services you receive. If you have no money you will have a negative account balance.
