The Apache County Jail‘s mission is to provide safe, secure constitutional and humane care for pre-trial and sentenced inmates in the custody of the Apache County Sheriff’s Office and to provide a safe, secure and professional environment for the facility staff. It is not our role to legislate, to render legal judgment or to punish.

Apache County broke ground for a new Sheriff’s Office and jail on June 19, 1990. The construction of the Sheriff’s Office and jail were done in two phases and completed on July 7, 1991. The Jail’s design was the result of approximately five years of study into the planning and construction of detention centers throughout the country.

The pod system is a standard and up-to-date system favored throughout the West Coast. It is popular because it is more easily monitored. Video monitoring devices are used only in the booking area. Control for all other areas is by natural sight lines alone. There are no blind corners, or dead spots. Inmates can be observed in any activity in which they are involved. The control center allows detention officers to see every corner of the facility.

Inmates in the Apache County Jail are provided with phones in each housing unit. These phones are for collect calls, as well as phone cards. Inmates are provided with commissary, contracted through an outside company. Profits received from the phones and commissary sales are deposited into a Jail Services Fund, which is in turn used for the benefit and welfare of the inmates.

Apache County Jail has 19 detention officers split into four shifts that each includes a corporal. There is one sergeant, one lieutenant, one administrative assistant and a commander. There are 5 tower operators. All detention officers are certified through the Arizona Detention Association and they also receive Defensive Tactics training as well as report writing. All our taser certified also.

How to send mail to an inmate?

All incoming inmate mail must have the inmate’s name and address on it.

Privileged mail will be opened and inspected for contraband in the presence of the inmate. Privileged mail is attorney of record, the Courts, Legal-Aid services and Adult Probation.

How to call an inmate?

Incoming calls to inmates are not allowed. Inmates have limited access to phones until they have been to their initial appearance, which occurs within 24 hours of the time of their arrest. After they are brought to the jail by the arresting agency and booked they will have an opportunity to make notification to family utilizing the inmate phone located in the booking area, if time allows. This will be a collect call. If the inmate is unable to make contact, a five minute phone call will be allowed using the jail phone.

After the inmate has seen the initial appearance magistrate, if not released the inmate will
be moved to one of the pods after being classified. General population inmates have access to the phones in the pods throughout the day when the inmates are not confined to their cells. Inmates housed in Protective Custody and Administrative Segregation will be allowed access to the phones in the pods between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm daily.
