Jail Operations & Procedures
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.
