  • Review by the O.R. Project for eligibility to be released on one’s own recognizance
  • Review for eligibility to be cited and released
  • DNA collection from persons arrested for felony charges
  • Inventory and storage of property

Inmates are not housed at County Jail #1. They e only at County Jail #1 for the period of time required to complete the booking and release processes. There is no visiting at County Jail #1.
