Eagle County Jail

The Eagle County Detention Facility is located in Eagle, Colorado. This jail is operated by the Eagle County Sheriff's Department and houses adult men and women who have been arrested by local law enforcement. 

This facility is designed to accommodate minimum, medium, and maximum security housing units. The male and female inmates are housed in separate areas in dormitory-style housing units. Minimum-security inmates are housed in a two-story direct supervision unit.

Direct supervision inmates are not free to leave the unit. But they are free to move about and participate in a wide range of activities. The unit includes sleeping areas and a multipurpose room for meetings and recreation. 

Because of the structural design of the facility, a detention deputy is continually supervising inmates. The deputy works within the "pod" or living area and is in direct control of the inmates. 

Detention facilities that use direct supervision have significantly lower rates of assaults, extortions, and lawsuits than the traditional linear style of detention facility management.

Bonding an Inmate out of the Eagle County Detention Facility

Call the jail information line at 970-328-8564 to find out the type of bond required for your inmate. A bond is set by a judge according to a court-approved schedule. 

The purpose of the bond is to assure an inmate’s appearance in court. The amount of the bond is what it will take to release the inmate from jail.

There are three types of bonds – personal recognizance (PR), surety, and cash. PR bonds are issued by the judge and only require a signature (no money). Surety bonds require a bondsman, who will pay the bond and charge you 10 to 15 percent of the bond amount as a fee. 

Cash bonds must be paid in full with cash, debit/credit card, or money order. They can be paid at the Eagle County Detention Facility. Find out more about the legal rights related to posting bond here, and the Eagle County Sheriff's Office bonding policy.
