The Washington County Jail's top priority is the safety and security of the public, jail staff, and inmates. Sound policy, procedure and professional standards guide our work and ensure we are following best jail practices. In addition, our actions are filtered through our core values: Do your best. Do the right thing. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
About 190 certified and civilian people work to run the Washington County Jail. Every day they provide services to approximately 572 inmates, as well as the many attorneys, friends, and family members who visit them. In addition to those lodged in our jail, we process over 50 new bookings and releases daily.
