    If you've ever been transferred direct from Multnomah County jail to this jail in the county next to it, the one thing you will notice is how much quieter it is and how they have total control over what is going on with inmates. It's like they have eyes and ears everywhere. Also, visits are better because they are in your unit and even better, the food is good compared to the chow in Portland justice Center and Inverness Jail in Multnomah. One piece of advice, make your defense lawyer come see you, because the courts inn Washington County will slam you.
