Community members are invited to participate in the Academy and experience an up-close, participative classroom program.


When:  TBA

Defendant Offender Management Center, 101 W 5th Ave., Eugene


Who:  All residents of Lane County interested in learning more about corrections are encouraged to apply. The program is free to participants. Space is limited, so those interested should reserve early.


“We are the only County jail and serve all local cities and unincorporated areas,” said Lane County Sgt. Steve Davis, Academy program coordinator. “Many community members are interested in what goes on behind these walls, so we are giving them the opportunity to come inside and learn more about the Sheriff’s Office and the Adult Corrections Custody Division.”


The 24-hour training will give participants an in-depth look at the types of training provided to correctional staff to develop and maintain professional standards. Course topics include Population make-up, Funding Sources, Jail Standards, Effective Communication styles, Contraband, determining Capacity Based Releases, the Future of Corrections, a facility tour, and more.
