On April 24, 2015, the Archuleta County Detention Facility flooded and was soon after deeded uninhabitable. Until recently, the Archuleta County Sheriff's Department has been transporting all of our inmates to the La Plata County Detention Facility in Durango, Colorado. Construction of two, four person cells was recently completed which allows us to holds most prisoners, especially if they can make arrangements to bond out; either immediately, or within a few days. Those who are serving sentences or not able to bond are transported to La Plata County Detention Facility.
The primary objective of the Archuleta Detention Facility is to maintain a clean, safe and secure environment for all inmates and detention staff. Detention staff also ensures court appearances of those accused of unlawful behavior prior to adjudication, and administers court ordered sanctions / punishments to those individuals convicted of a crime.
