The Ector Co CC, located at 301 N Texas St in Odessa, TX, is a secure detention center operated by the Ector County Sheriff's Office. This facility primarily houses individuals awaiting trial or sentencing, typically for less than two years. It accepts inmates from various jurisdictions, including surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service, and the Odessa Police Department.

New detainees are regularly admitted to the jail, with some being released on bail or placed under pretrial services caseloads. Others await their court appearances at the facility, receiving necessary accommodations such as bedding and meals. View all arrest records here.

Inmates serving as trustees within the jail undertake various tasks, including cooking, laundry, and commissary management, often receiving minimal compensation or sentence reduction for their services.

The jail offers a phone program for outbound calls only, with inmates unable to receive incoming calls. Accepting collect calls can be expensive, sometimes exceeding $10 per call. Alternatively, setting up an account through a third-party phone company may entail high fees per minute of usage.

Visitation Information

Visiting Days are Tuesday and Thursday

8:30 am to 10:00 am, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm & 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm

Jail visitation is conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Visitors must fill out a Visitation Permit and turn it into the receptionist at the Detention Center, and they will be called when their turn comes. If you already have a completed visitation permit, it may save some time. You can print out a visitation permit at home, in either English or Spanish and complete it beforehand. Visitation permits will not be accepted during the last 15 minutes of each visitation period.

All visitors 17 years and older must produce a valid government-issued picture identification (State ID card; State Driver's license; military ID; current passport and resident alien cards) are the only identifications that will be accepted. All visitors under the age of 17 years must be accompanied by an adult who is 21 years of age or older or they must present a valid state driver's license to be approved to visit. Only 2 (two) adults are allowed during the same visit. If children are visiting, there can be 1 (one) adult and 2 (two) children under the age of 12 years. If there are additional people registered to visit the inmate, the 20 (twenty) minute visit must be split among the registered visitors.
