Multnomah County Department of Community Justice


The Department of Community Justice (DCJ) serves a vital role in protecting public safety and the strength of the communities in Multnomah County, Oregon. We intervene to prevent the recurrence of crime among juvenile and adult defendants and offenders by supervising them and helping them to change problem behavior. We provide supervision, sanctions, and treatment resources to youth, adults, families, and communities to address the underlying problems that drive crime. 
In 2011, the Department of Community Justice:
  • Operated 24 hours a day with approximately 645 permanent, on-call, and temporary employees;
  • Supervised about 8,300 probationers and post-prison adult offenders;
  • Processed over 21,000 pretrial cases;
  • Admitted 625 youth to the Donald E. Long Detention Home and supervised about 300 youth on formal probation.
Our department actively manages our limited time and resources in order to maximize services provided to the public. We are dedicated to continuous improvement throughout the department by collecting, analyzing and utilizing performance data. We consult evidence-based practices in our policy and program development. We make long-term investments in our employees through the provision of education and training. We believe that in order to enhance public safety we must work in collaboration with the courts, law enforcement, schools, treatment agencies, and the community.
