The Island County Jail was remodeled with additional space in 1983 and is a traditional linear style (cell block and dormitory) facility which houses both sentenced and pre-trial maximum security inmates. The Jail is designed to house up to 58 inmates at any given time.

Inmates have access to outdoor recreation, mail, commissary purchases (minor grocery store food items and sundries), and special programs. Inmates also receive medical, mental health, and dental care. Religious services, and some offender change programs are also offered. Public visiting is also available on a rotational basis, please review our Visiting Protocols page for more information. Sentenced inmates may be eligible to perform work in the facility kitchen or custodial crews and receive "work-time" credits to reduce their sentences. Eligible inmates may qualify for the Electronic Monitoring Program.
