Denver Sheriff Department

Denver Sheriff Department

The Denver Sheriff Department is the third largest criminal justice agency in the State of Colorado, following the Denver Police Department and the Colorado Department of Corrections. Thirty percent (30%) of all inmates sentenced to the Colorado Department of Corrections are from the City and County of Denver.

Currently within the department are positions for 3 Division Chiefs, 5 Majors, 18 Captains, 70 Sergeants and 682 deputies and 123 civilians.

The divisions of the Sheriff Department are:

* County Jail
* Pre-Arraignment Detention Facility
* Civil Division
* Technology, Support and Projects Division
* Vehicle Impound Facility

The Denver jails hold the distinction for being the first local detention facilities in the United States to be accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA). This distinction will again be realized with construction of the new Denver Justice Center. Both facilities also hold accreditation by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC).
