Weld County Jail

The Weld County Jail is located in Greeley, Colorado. It is operated by the Weld County Sheriff's Department and houses adult men and women who have been arrested by local county or municipal law enforcement. 

This facility 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.

Housing units at the jail are called, "pods," which are made up of several individual rooms connected to a large room. There is a correctional officer working inside each housing unit 24 hours a day. The rooms at the jail have one bed or more, and a housing unit may hold as many as 80 inmates.

Inmates must stay in their room or cell with the door closed or locked several times each day during "lock down" periods. Inmates are outside their individual room or cell about 10 hours every day.

All basic hygiene supplies and clothing are issued by the jail. Some inmates have to wash their own underclothing, but the jail regularly washes and exchanges uniforms and bedding. Inmates are expected to shower at least twice weekly and may ask for a razor to shave. Haircuts are available, but there is a fee.

Colorado VINE

The Colorado VINE system is a service through which victims of crime can search for information regarding the custody status of their offender, and to register to receive phone calls and e-mail notifications when the offender’s custody status changes. 

The VINE toll-free number for the Colorado VINE system is (888) 263-8463. This service is provided to assist Victims of Crime who have a right to know about their offender's custody status. Click this link to register.

Inmates being held for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC), or charges from other counties will not be found by going to the VINE Link above. You will have to call the jail.

Bonding an Inmate out of the Weld County Jail

You can call the Weld 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 Weld 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.
