The Park County WY Detention Center is a medium-security detention center located at 1402 River View Dr Cody, WY which is operated locally by the Park 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. Park County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Cody Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

The Detention Center is a 106 bed, short term, designed to hold both female and male adults as well as female and male juveniles. The jail holds both sentenced and un-sentenced (pre-trial) individuals. Persons who are pre-trial and unable to post bond will have varying lengths of stays determined greatly upon the inmate and their attorney. Persons who are sentenced to serve time by the Courts can have sentences imposed that could range from one day, up to one year.

The Park County holds inmates for Cody and Powell Municipal Courts, Park County Circuit Court, and the Park County District Court. All inmates being held in the Park County Detention Center have charges that originated in Park County; and currently do not hold any inmates from outside the County.

The staff consists of, one Administrator, one Administrative Assistant, four Sworn Detention Sergeants, twenty-one Sworn Detention Deputies, two full-time cooks, and two part time cooks. We are a twenty-four hour, seven day a week operation, tasked with the safekeeping of those placed in our custody. This is not a task that we take lightly, and strive to perform this task with empathy, and consistency. Our average population ranges in the fifties and sixties, with the highest population to date of eighty-nine.
