Facility & Program Highlights

The Justice System Improvement Program (JSIP) is a multi-year project that began with a detailed 2018 assessment. Since then, a cross-section of County staff, technical experts, and community stakeholders have met and provided input to develop a plan to provide treatment and accountability, ensure safety, and strengthen the community. The plan involves the development of a number of new facilities as well as expanded mental health and behavioral health crisis programs and services. When completed, services will include:

  • A new Benton County Crisis Center that will be a treatment-centered facility that may be an alternative to incarceration or the emergency room, providing stabilization for people experiencing a mental health crisis. (located in downtown Corvallis)
  • A new Community Safety and Justice Campus located 1 mile north of downtown Corvallis, featuring a new courthouse and District Attorney’s Office, correctional facility, emergency operations center, and Sheriff’s Office.

Funding for these new facilities will come from a variety of sources leveraged by the County including state and federal funds, County funding, and a local bond measure, planned for May 2023.
