Adult Detention Center
The adult detention center has a staff of 65 full-time positions, which include administrative and security personnel. In addition to county employees, there are contract personnel in the medical, mental health, kitchen and commissary departments.
Built in 1993, the main facility was designed with 208 beds and the annex was designed with 50 beds. Inmates are housed in 9 secure housing units. Most inmates share a cell with three other inmates.
The average daily female inmate population in calendar year 2015 was 44. The average daily male inmate population in calendar year 2015 was 181. Most of the inmates are Pretrial detainees. Inmates are also occasionally housed in the neighboring counties of Roosevelt, Bailey, and Parmer to help reduce over-crowding, or to aid in proper classification.
The actual visiting hours vary depending on the following factors:
The day of the week.
Where the inmate is housed.
The inmate's sex.
Whether or not it is a Holiday.
Each inmate is allowed one or two visits, ranging from 15 minutes to one hour in length each week. Inmates with special privileges are allowed additional visits.
If you are visiting from another state or traveling a great distance, Curry County Jail & Sheriff may allow you an extended visitation. Call 575-762-3819 to ask for special consideration.
