Clackamas County Jail seeks public input on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Self-Survey and Transition Plan Update

News Release from: Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office

Posted: Monday, November 6, 2017, 3:37 p.m.

 

The Clackamas County Jail is in the process of updating its ADA Self-Survey and Transition Plan -- and the Sheriff's Office is seeking the public's input.

The Transition Plan will be used as a guide for making improvements that will facilitate accessibility -- by removing physical impediments in the Clackamas County Jail and improving current levels of service in any Jail policies, programs, and procedures that could create barriers to accessibility for persons with disabilities.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates that the Clackamas County Jail identify the hindrances encountered with disabilities. Upon completion of this self-survey component, the Transition Plan will outline a strategy for prioritizing such improvements -- considering such factors as the extent of deficiency, identified need, available budget, and realistic schedule.

The Transition Plan will ultimately formulate the Jail's strategy for transitioning to a fully accessible facility.

The Clackamas County Jail is seeking public input in updating this Transition Plan.

All suggestions, comments, or specific deficiencies should be brought to the Jail's attention by January 31, 2018, so that they may be evaluated and included in the self-evaluation. This can be done by contacting Lieutenant Rollins, ADA Coordinator, preferably via e-mail at toddrol@co.clackamas.or.us or by phone at 503-722-6702. You may also send any comments or suggestions by snail-mail to:

Lieutenant Rollins, ADA Coordinator
Clackamas County Jail
2206 Kaen Rd
Oregon City, OR 97045.

This notice is available in alternative formats, on request.
