Inmate Programs

The Garfield County Detentions Facility offers a number of voluntary Inmate Programs facilitated by volunteers. These individuals make it their goal to provide Inmates with essential skills, alternative options, and opportunities to succeed when released. Many inmates come to jail in need of assistance with addictions, education, cognitive redirecting, and resource connections. These programs empower Inmates to make positive and productive change.

Studies show that Inmate Programs directly correlate with:

  • Reducing recidivism
  • Decreasing the number of conflicts and incidents of violence within the housing units
  • Encouraging positive decision making
  • Establishing necessary contacts with resources in the community

The following programs are currently offered to inmates
