Multnomah County Jail Returns To Open Booking

(Portland, OR) -- The Multnomah County Jail is returning to an "open booking" policy. That means any person arrested in Multnomah County for any felony or misdemeanor offense can be booked into jail. In 2020, the Sheriff's Office narrowed the booking policy to manage the jail population and COVID-19 cases. Since then, the Sheriff's Office has reviewed how adults in custody are housed, how space in the jail is used, and how services are provided. The policy takes into account new laws that allow suspects with more than a gram of fentanyl to be booked into jail, along with people caught with so-called ghost guns.
