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. Some facilities are fully funded and some would require passage of a proposed bond measure to be put before voters in May 2023.
Proposed facilities included in the bond measure were determined through a community-involved planning process and are intended to improve access to mental health services and community-based supports for all residents, and to provide adequate space for improved accountability and treatment programs for adults in custody.

Fully funded projects (not included in the bond measure)
- A new Benton County Crisis Center, located in downtown Corvallis, is funded through state and federal grants and is scheduled to open in summer 2024. The crisis center will be a voluntary walk-in treatment-centered facility that may be an alternative to the emergency room, which provides stabilization for individuals experiencing a mental health crisis, along with referrals and support for ongoing behavioral health services.
- A new Community Safety and Justice Campus located 1 mile north of downtown Corvallis, is in development. A new courthouse and District Attorney’s Office will be constructed on the campus and are scheduled to open in 2025. The Courthouse will be funded with a 50% matching grant and the remaining costs for these two facilities will be funded through County borrowing.
