Plumas Sheriff Unveils State-of-the-Art Correctional Facility


After a long wait and construction delays, the Plumas Sheriff’s Office will cut the ribbon on the newly built Correctional Facility and Daily Reporting Center, located off Abernathy Lane in Quincy.

Plumas County received a state grant of $25 million back in 2017 to build this new jail; at the time, Supervisor Greg Hagwood was Plumas County Sheriff. Ground broke on the facility just under two years ago.

Scaled down from the original design to accommodate inflated construction costs, the new jail is designed to house 60 in-custody persons and will also house the day reporting services for Plumas County. The state-of-the-art justice facility includes a family reunification space, visiting (2) multi-use spaces, a training facility for the sheriff’s department, a medical space, a kitchen/laundry, and (2) outdoor recreation areas.

The sheriff’s office is inviting the community to the ceremony on June 12th at 10 a.m. Tours of the facility will begin after the ribbon is cut and continue through 2 that afternoon.

The construction of the new jail is poised to bolster law enforcement in the county and fuel recruitment.
