The Jefferson County Jail (Detention Facility) is the central detention facility for all law enforcement agencies in Jefferson County, including local police departments. The county jail houses inmates and pre-trial detainees who have been committed to the custody of the sheriff.
The staff of the Detention Services Division is responsible for all aspects of the jail: from booking and classification of inmates to facility security, medical services and transportation.
The Jefferson County Jail is designed to accommodate approximately 1,300 inmates in minimum, medium and maximum security units and special housing areas. The entire facility comprises 388,000 square feet, with room for male and female detainees in separate housing modules.
The Jefferson County Jail opened in 1986 at its current location at 200 Jefferson County Parkway in Golden. In 1999 the Sheriff’s Office broke ground on a jail expansion that brought the building to its current size. The facility contains recreation yards, an online law library, and program rooms to support activities for personal development.
Persons in custody in minimum-security areas are housed in dormitory-style housing. While they are not free to leave the module, they are free to move about within the unit and participate in a wide range of activities. Most of those activities are directed at developing skills necessary to be successful after the inmate returns to the community. Each two-story quadrant in the minimum-security areas includes sleeping rooms, exercise areas, token-operated laundries and multipurpose rooms for meetings and recreation. Through the direct-supervision structural design of many parts of the jail, staff members are able to supervise inmates most effectively.
