History

The Klamath County Jail had been built in 1989. Only experienced and extremely well-trained correctional officers worked in the facility. The jail is up-and-running 24 hours a day, and stays open every day of the year. Inside the jail is it's kitchen, which is staffed by inmates and supervised by cooks who have no criminal background. Laundry is also maintained by inmates. There are many sections of the prison, and each section has an indoor and outdoor avocation area as well as a library cabinet that is supported by the Klamath County Library.

Before the "new jail" was built in 1989, there had been an "old jail" in Klamath County. It was extremely old, precariously designed jail that sat three stories tall. The "new jail" was built because of a lawsuit brought upon by an inmate for unlawful conditions in the previous jail. Klamath County decided on a consent decree that demanded the new jail to be built. This decree also necessitated an ample remodel to the old jail to achieve sustainable living conditions for the prisoners during the construction of the new jail.

In late June of 2010, Klamath County closed down C-Pod and B-Pod. With this, they let go 12 staff members and released inmates due to budget cuts. They re-opened C-Pod due to the insane amount of inmates that came in from the Trojan Horse Operation. The jail had known in advance that they would have to re-open it very quickly because the Trojan Horse Investigation went on for awhile before the actual bust took place.

Because of this and having absolutely no extra funding, the jail had to keep an eye on it's budgets. Changes had to be made to the plumbing because C-Pod had not been occupied for almost three years, and after these changes had been made, they used some of the plumbing from C-Pod to fix the plumbing in other sections of the jail. Because they had been careful with their budget, they had enough money in their food, medical, and clothing lines to cover the funding needed from Trojan Horse. The Trojan Horse Operation caught more than 30 arrests, 4 pounds of meth and 25 guns.
