  1. The Stanislaus County Adult Detention Facilities were designed and constructed to provide the citizens of Stanislaus County with a safe and secure facility that either complies with or exceeds the standards articulated by local, state, federal, and professional agencies.

  2. The operations of the Facilities will ensure that those remanded to our care are provided with safe, secure, and humane treatment consistent with applicable standards, laws and judicial decisions.

  3. Alternatives to incarceration will be utilized consistent with our responsibility to ensure public safety and protect inmate rights.

  4. Inmates will be classified to the least restrictive mode of housing with due consideration to the safety of the public, inmates, and staff.

  5. Essentials of human life, i.e., medical and mental health care, nutritious meals, recreation, clean environment, religious counseling, and education opportunity will be provided to all within our care where security permits.

  6. The continuity of family and community contact will be encouraged by appropriate policies governing visiting, telephone usage, volunteer involvement and mail.

  7. Staff will participate in the development and implementation of the Facility’s goals and objectives, policies, and procedures.

  8. The written document describing the Facility’s philosophy, goals, and policies will be updated as necessary and will be reviewed annually.
