The facility requires the inmates family and friends to load up money on the inmate’s phone account for them to call home. Even though an inmate is serving their time out in the Montezuma County Jail, it does not mean they cannot call home to their loved ones.
The Montezuma County Jail accepts inmates from surrounding municipalities and towns when there are no rooms in city jails. Majority of the inmates that are already sentenced have sentences less than two years at best.
The Montezuma County Jail is a state of the art jail equipped with surveillance systems. They also have a central common area where inmates will have their meals, be able to socialize with one another, and even have a secure outdoor recreation area. The facility is locked and loaded with six housing units. Every housing unit contains many cells on two levels.
In 2017, the Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office axed the Jails Community Corrections Division. This means that the Montezuma County Jail will not have the Work Crew or the Work/Education Release (WER) programs available to their inmates any longer.
The Montezuma County Jail is staffed by the Deputy Sheriffs, a number of volunteers and support staff, Correctional Officers, and Sheriff Command Officers.
The Montezuma County Jail houses inmates on all security levels. The facility takes in many inmates from the surrounding jails due to overcrowding or if an inmate has special needs that the facility cannot accommodate. The facility will house boarded inmates from other law enforcement agencies on a local, state, and even federal level.
