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.
