Multnomah County Detention CenterStreaming Video - 2010
Every day the Portland Police dragnet pulls in more thieves, drug dealers, and addicts from the most populated county in the state of Oregon. This program goes inside the Portland jail, which isn't just running out of room-it ran out a long time ago. With approximately 3,500 new bookings per month, or more than 100 bookings per day, the 700-capacity center lacks the space, the staff, and the resources to accommodate all of its prisoners. Each day, those with minor infractions are released to make room for the serious offenders.
