What is NORCOR?

Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facilities, otherwise known as “NORCOR,” is a Regional Adult Corrections and Juvenile Detention complex that serves four counties: Gilliam, Hood River, Sherman, and Wasco counties. (In separate agreements, NORCOR also serves Benton County, the U.S. Marshals and Immigrations & Customs Enforcement [ICE].)

NORCOR is in nearby The Dalles, Oregon. It is reportedly the first jail in the U.S. to merge the jail systems of four counties and adults and juveniles into one facility. It books around 2,800 inmates per year, including an average of 14 Sherman County inmates per month. The average length of stay is 13 days.
