News Release
Coffee Creek Correctional Facility Employee Assaulted by Incarcerated Male - 06/17/21

On June 12, 2021, at approximately 2:30 p.m., a Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF) Correctional Officer was assaulted with a knife-like weapon by an incarcerated male at the Intake Center. As a result of the assault, the staff member was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment of cuts to the face and head. Security staff responded to the assault and gave first aid to the employee. The adult in custody (AIC) was transported to a segregation unit at another DOC institution. 

To protect the employee’s privacy, the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) will not release the employee’s name. He has been released from the hospital and is recovering at home. Critical Incident Stress Management Team has been established at CCCF to aid employees involved in the incident. 

DOC is not releasing the name of the AIC because he is incarcerated from another state. In these cases, the names and locations of incarcerated people are not disclosed. Releasing confidential information may hinder our ability to use the exchange program and could jeopardize the safety and security of the individual.

Speaking on the incident, CCCF Superintendent Nichole Brown shared, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Correctional Officer, his family, all of our first responders, and all those impacted by this terrible incident. The staff at CCCF come to work each day as corrections professionals dedicated to our mission to maintain the safety, security, and rehabilitation of our adults in custody. Especially at the Intake Center, employees walk into an environment that can be unpredictable. Much of the time, we focus on the great programs and opportunities at DOC—and our agency has made great strides in improving employee wellness—but the unavoidable reality of this work is that it can be high risk and high stress. This is a challenging time for our team and we stand together in support of one another.”

DOC is cooperating with the Oregon State Police on the criminal investigation. 

CCCF is a multi-custody prison in Wilsonville accommodating all of Oregon’s female AICs (approximately 1,260). The prison has cell and dormitory housing, work programs, skills training, treatment programs, health services, religious services, physical plant, a central records unit, and administrative areas. CCCF participates in prison industries with Oregon Corrections Enterprises, including a contact center, textiles, and document scanning. In addition, CCCF houses the state’s Intake Center, which provides intake and evaluation of all AICs committed to state custody by the courts. The Intake Center houses approximately 400 male inmates. CCCF’s minimum facility opened in 2001, and the medium facility opened in 2002.
