The Natrona Co Jail is a detention center located at 1100 Bruce Ln Casper, WY which is operated locally by the Natrona County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Natrona County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Casper Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Wyoming here.

The Natrona County Detention Center operates with a philosophy centered on ensuring community safety, facility security, and the welfare of both staff and inmates. Established in 1996 with six housing pods and a capacity of 211 beds, the facility underwent significant renovations in 2006, adding four new housing pods and increasing its capacity to 476 beds.

The primary function of the Natrona County Detention Center is to safely and securely detain both pre-trial detainees and sentenced inmates. While the nature of confinement inherently involves certain deprivations, the staff's role is not to inflict punishment but to make the period of confinement as productive as possible for the inmates.

Books and magazines ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. Prisons and jails enforce this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate.

The facility operates on a 24-hour basis, with designated administrative lock-down periods during which public activities are suspended. These lock-down times are from 5:30 am to 6:00 am, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. During these periods, the focus is on maintaining security and order within the facility.
