Detention Security

Pueblo County Detention Facility

The Security Division encompasses three major sections: Custody, Intake/Booking, and Inmate Property. These sections account for 3 Lieutenants, 10 Sergeants, and 120 Deputies and Civilian Clerks.

The Custody section is responsible for the safety and security of all persons being held in one of three categories:

  • Pre-sentence detainees are held until posting bail or until adjudicated by the courts.
  • Sentenced inmates for misdemeanors are housed for up to two years.
  • Courtesy holds are housed for short terms for other counties, other states, and
    in some cases for federal agencies.

Deputies in the Custody section manage the day-to-day operation of the jail facility to include random cell checks and searches, serving food trays, delivering mail, and enforce facility rules and the laws of the State of Colorado.

The Intake/Booking section is responsible for receiving all persons who are brought into the custody of the sheriff. These deputies and civilian clerks process the legal paperwork related to the arrest, fingerprint, photo, and interview for the initial classification and medical needs of each arrestee. This area is also responsible for releasing all of the persons held in custody once their case(s) have been completed whether that is to the community or to another agency. They do many other things as well like managing the inmate visitation (www.securustech.net/videovisitation) system and the inmate cash accounts (link to https://www.ezreleasekiosk.com/EZMoneyLoad_Remote/Default.aspx) system.

The Inmate Property section is responsible for property storage and supplies. All of the belongings that a person has when arriving at the jail are inventoried and stored until the person is released. Each person who is moved to custody from intake is issued a variety of items like a jail uniform, bedding, and basic hygiene items. Indigent inmates may also receive additional hygiene items like shampoo and materials for writing letters.

The Security Division also includes several associated task areas like new deputy on-the-job training programs, facility cleaning, criminal intelligence gathering, and tactical operations.
