Marion County Sheriff's Office In Action


Summer, 2014 – The Marion County Sheriff’s Office Jail Reentry Program is an intensive and collaborative 90-day treatment and reentry program designed for specific medium and high-risk, drug-addicted individuals returning to the Marion County community. This cognitive-based program offers a variety of services including enhanced supervision, cognitive programming, parenting classes, mentoring, housing, employment services, and addiction treatment within a highly structured environment.

The Jail Reentry Program is designed to target Marion County’s historically highest recidivist population (typically around 35%), and will be delivered at the Marion County Work Release Center located on the Sheriff’s Office Campus in Southeast Salem. Each cohort will serve up to 12 participants to ensure that class sizes are within recommended guidelines. A Parole & Probation deputy will work alongside a Jail & Work Center counselor to jointly assess, supervise, and manage all program participants, which include assessments of addiction, risk to recidivate, criminogenic risk factors linked to criminal activity, and motivation for change. Each of these assessments involves a specific test or set of questions which, when administered by professionals, help determine the participant’s readiness and ability to make positive changes and will help guide the supervision.

The Jail Reentry Program’s addiction programming includes professional mentors designed to provide pro-social support and will be administered by Bridgeway Recovery Services, a local private non-profit agency. Other relevant criminogenic risk factors and programming will be addressed by the De Muniz Resource Center staff (www., run by the Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency and the Parole & Probation Division of the Sheriff’s Office.

As incentive and component of JRP, program participants who successfully complete the first 45-days of programming while in custody, will be eligible for transition to Post-Prison Supervision for the remaining 45-days of programming and aftercare. While in the community, the Parole & Probation deputy will manage the remaining time in the community and ensure that each criminogenic risk factor continues to be addressed by Bridgeway Recovery Services, De Muniz Resource Center, Sheriff’s Office, or other community-based service provider.
