The Plymouth County Correctional Facility, located off Long Pond Road in Plymouth, opened in 1994. Designed to reflect modern corrections management practices, it holds a diverse male population of county, state and federal inmates.
In addition to providing for the safe and secure holding of up to 1,240 detainees, PCCF offers educational, vocational and re-entry programs. Qualified inmates are also eligible to participate in work programs within the jail, supervised community labor volunteers, and the Sheriff’s Farm located on Obery Street. Many locales and non-profit organizations have benefitted by inmate crews working in the area communities.
PCSD also supports local city and towns with its K-9 Unit, Warrant Apprehension Team and Honor Guard. The Sheriff’s Communications Center serves as a vital link between paramedics and area hospitals and provides services to public agencies at major events. The Bureau of Criminal Investigation and a specially trained corps of specialists assist police in collecting evidence at crime scenes and photographing major traffic accidents.
The Civil Process Department, headquartered in Brockton, dispatches deputies to serve legal documents in civil cases. Fees paid by attorneys and plaintiffs for delivery of these documents fund the division’s operation.
The Sheriff is also responsible for operation of its Civil Process Division, which delivers legal documents and enforces court orders.
