Pueblo County Jail

The Pueblo County Jail (aka the Pueblo County Detention Facility) is located in Pueblo, Colorado. It is operated by the Detention Bureau of the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department and houses adult men and women who have been arrested by local county or municipal law enforcement. 

This jail holds both pre-trial inmates and sentenced inmates. It also holds parole violators, ICE inmates, and inmates who are awaiting transport to the Colorado Department of Corrections.

The Detention Bureau strives to operate a clean, safe, secure, and humane jail. The average daily population used to be above 700. But since the pandemic, measures have been taken to reduce the jail population. The average daily population is now around 480.

Bonding an Inmate out of the Pueblo County Jail

You can call the Pueblo County Jail to find out the type of bond and the amount that is required for your inmate. The bond is set by a judge according to a court-approved schedule. The purpose of a bond is to make sure the defendant will appear at all his or her court dates. The bond amount 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 is needed). 
  • Surety bonds require a bondsman, who will pay the bond and charge you 10% to 15% of the bond amount as a fee (none of this money will be returned to you). 
  • Cash bonds must be paid in full with cash, debit/credit card, or money order. Payment is accepted at the jail lobby 24/7 or online. The full amount of a cash bond is returned once all court appearances have been made.

There is a $30 booking fee and a $10 bond fee for all inmates at the Pueblo County Jail. The expectation is that these fees will be paid at the time of bonding your inmate out of jail. Colorado law does allow those fees to be charged, and you do not have to pay them at the time of bonding.

Please call the jail if you have any questions.
