Detention Mission Statement
It is the mission of the Rio Blanco County Detention Center to provide a safe and secure confinement to all persons remanded to the custody of the Sheriff's office. The Detention Center services the secure detention needs of the criminal justice community, together with public safety needs for the citizens of Rio Blanco County. This is accomplished by providing housing for pretrial detainees and sentenced persons in a direct supervision environment. All incarcerations are managed by policies that hold the inmates accountable for their behavior. The Rio Blanco County Detention Center is committed to the principles of basic human rights and dignity afforded all persons incarcerated, as embodied within the Constitutions of the United States and the State of Colorado.
