The Weld County Jail will accept and lawfully hold prisoners in a safe, humane, wholesome environment that provides opportunities for rehabilitation, victim reparation and returns people to the community better, or no worse, than they arrived.
Housing units, called “Pods”, are made up of several individual rooms connected to a large room. A correctional officer is working inside each housing unit 24 hours daily. Individual rooms can have one bed or more. A housing unit may hold as many as 80 inmates.
Inmates have to stay in their room or cell with the door closed or locked several times a day. This is called a “lock down” period. Even with lock downs, inmates are still outside their individual room or cell about 10 hours every day.
How to visit an inmate?
All personal visitations will be facilitated through the use of video visitation equipment to approved visitors by appointment. Appointments can be made over the phone at 970-304-6556 and may be scheduled up to a week in advance.
Appointments for visiting are taken from 9:00am -6pm, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. All visits will be a maximum of thirty minutes long and will be subject to monitoring and recording.
When you come to visit, bring a valid government picture identification card or a driver’s license. We do not accept paper forms of I.D. or school issued identification cards.
No food, drink, cell phones, or cameras are allowed at the visiting monitors. All visitors must be appropriately dressed or the visit will be denied.
A parent or legal guardian must accompany all visitors under the age of 18. Only one adult visitor and two minor children may visit an inmate during a scheduled appointment.
How to call an inmate?
Only collect-call telephones are available to inmates. All personal telephone calls are recorded. A fee is billed to the person called for every call accepted. Talk time is limited to 15 minutes per call. Calls cannot be made to international numbers and will disconnect if a computer believes you are trying to forward a call to someone else or have a portable phone. If you accept a lot of calls, the cost will quickly add up on your phone bill. We encourage you to write letters and visit in person so you don’t spend a lot of money.
You can have your telephone number blocked so it cannot be called from jail by asking the on-duty supervisor. The block will stay until you call the on-duty supervisor to have it removed.
