A team of twelve corrections officers, all of whom are trained and certified by the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission, operate the jail. The command structure consists of one lieutenant, two sergeants and nine officers. In the Puyallup Jail, upholding the constitutional rights of all inmates while providing safety and security is paramount. Therefore, our corrections officers govern by the legitimate penological interests of the facility. Through those principles, inmate rights are preserved. To maintain safety and security, the jail is located inside the City of Puyallup Public Safety Building, which also houses the Puyallup Police Department and Central Pierce Fire and Rescue.
Service is our mission. Please contact us if we can assist you in any way.
After accepting defendants from law enforcement officers, they are given pat down searches. With assistance from correction officers, all personal property is removed and inventoried. Jail garments and linens are issued to prisoners. As part of the booking process, inmates are fingerprinted and photographed. Prisoners are assigned to cells pending bail, or arraignment by the City of Puyallup Municipal Court.
Medical treatment is provided by contract by an accredited health care company or health care organization in the community. If desired, prisoners may attend substance abuse rehabilitation groups and religious study classes. The jail maintains a book and video library to assist inmates with behavioral modification.
