The Pend Oreille Co Jail is a detention center located at 331 S Garden Ave Newport, WA which is operated locally by the Pend Oreille 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. Pend Oreille County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Newport 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.

INMATE PROPERTY

At the time of booking, only a limited amount of property is accepted for inmate storage. Property not accepted by the jail is impounded by the arresting agency for safe keeping. Forward all questions regarding impounded or safekeeping property to the inmate’s arresting agency. The inmate is allowed to release property to a friend or relative within 72 hours of booking or when being transferred to Department of Corrections after sentencing. The inmate may request and complete a Property Release Form to release their personal property.

When the inmate is transferred to another institution, the inmate must complete a Property Release Form, and make arrangements for the disposal or transfer of the left behind property. Property left longer than thirty (30) days is disposed of in accordance with the Revised Code of Washington (RCW 63.42.040). Deceased inmate’s property will be held for one hundred and eighty (180) days prior to disposal. The Sheriff’s Office Civil Division shall inventory all personal property prior to its destruction or donation.

The jail accepts Jury Trial clothing only on verification of a judge’s signed order from the courts. Jury Trial clothing should be brought to the jail the day before the trial. Jury Trial clothing picked should be picked up by someone outside the jail within five (5) working days after the end of the trial.

Inmates are released in the same clothing they are booked with. The facility will not accept a clothing exchange or store extra clothing.

Inmates are assigned a paper property bag for their in-cell property. Inmate’s in-cell property must fit within this bag. A limited amount of personal letters or papers are allowed with the inmate and must fit within an issued mail envelope. A reasonable amount of legal paperwork and religious materials is also allowed.

Commissary clothing is available for purchase from the commissary vendor.

Inmates are not allowed to sell, transfer, or give the property of value to another inmate at any time. This includes commissary purchased items.

INMATE COMMISSARY

Inmates housed in the Pend Oreille County Corrections have the ability to purchase items from an independent commissary provider. The company does not currently provide an option form friends or family members to access the inmate’s commissary account. A person may drop money off for the inmate before or after visiting or send a money order to the facility care of the inmate. If sending a money order, make the money order out to Pend Oreille Corrections, no to the inmate. Indicate in the sending envelope which inmate the money order is intended for.

If the inmate is released prior to a commissary order delivery, the commissary is held for thirty (30) days. After 30 days, the items are destroyed or distributed to indigent inmates by a designated officer.

Commissary items delivered after the release of an inmate may be requested and picked up during visiting signup times and after when visitor inmate money is received.

INMATE PHONE SYSTEM

Inmates who are housed in the Pend Oreille County Corrections have access to parties outside the facility by using the inmate telephone system. This system is owned and maintained by a private communications company, Consolidated Telecom Inc. (www.ctel.us).

MEDICAL CARE AND MEDICATION

For routine medical appointments, medical staff, including a physician, monitors the facility’s inmates throughout the week and operate our in-house infirmary as needed for inmate appointments.

An inmate may bring prescription medications with them to use while being incarcerated. The prescription medications must be prescribed to the inmate and be in the original container with the prescription label attached. The prescription must not be expired. (Certain medications prescribed to patients outside of the jail may not be prescribed by jail medical staff as the Washington State Department of Corrections Medication Formulary is followed. To maintain some prescriptions inside the facility, the prescription must be filled and paid for by an outside provider.)

In-house clinic appointments are request by inmates using a medical request form. Although this is an in-house clinic, appointments need to be made prior to medical see an inmate for non-emergency medical requests. Appointments are scheduled by medical staff after reviewing the medical request. Medical staff review all medical requests. Corrections medical staff communicate with Corrections staff throughout the week and may adjust medications or conditions if requested by the inmate. Corrections medical staff will contact the inmate’s personal doctor for consultation if needed. (HIPPA is followed in this facility.)

The Corrections medical staff will be the inmate’s primary provider while they are incarcerated. Inmates may not make an appointment for medical care with an outside medical provider without it first being approved by Corrections medical staff while incarcerated in this facility. If an inmate has a medical appointment scheduled prior to incarceration, it is the responsibility of the inmate to notify Corrections staff of the appointment. Medical staff will be advised of the appointment for review or referral. The medical staff may consult with the inmate’s regular physician if needed, however, jail medical staff are responsible for writing all order for care while the inmate is in the facility.

Medications are normally dispensed four times a day. Inmates are responsible for insuring the medications are the correct medication and correct dosage prior to taking them. The officer will check to see if the medication is consumed prior to bringing the inmate back to the cell.

The jail will provide common over the counter medication if requested. Certain over the counter medications will be made available if medical staff determines it is needed. Inmates are not charged for Medical, Psychiatric, or Dental services if they have no insurance. However if an inmate has medical coverage, the insurance provider may be billed for any medical services provided or requested.

Medical service which could be billed to an insurance provider:

  • Medical screening at the time of arrest prior to booking.
  • Life threatening medical of psychiatric emergencies not associated to being incarcerated.
  • Care for serious or chronic medical conditions.
  • Physical exams.
  • Follow-up and continuation of recent and ongoing medical care started by a doctor or other practitioner prior to being booked into jail.
