The Park Co Jail is a 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, Cody 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 Park County Detention Center is a short-term detention facility with a capacity of 106 beds, designed to accommodate both male and female adults, as well as male and female juveniles. This county-operated facility functions under the authority of the Sheriff, as mandated by Wyoming State Statutes, and is distinct from state or federal facilities.

The detention center holds both sentenced and unsentenced (pre-trial) individuals. The duration of stay for pre-trial detainees, who are unable to post bond, varies significantly depending on the circumstances of the inmate and their legal representation. Sentenced individuals can receive court-imposed sentences ranging from one day to one year.

The Park County Detention Center serves the Cody and Powell Municipal Courts, Park County Circuit Court, and Park County District Court. All inmates in this facility face charges originating within Park County; no inmates from outside the county are held here. The facility's staff comprises one Administrator, one Administrative Assistant, four Sworn Detention Sergeants, twenty-one Sworn Detention Deputies, two full-time cooks, and two part-time cooks. The center operates 24/7, dedicated to the safe custody of those placed within its care, a responsibility undertaken with empathy and consistency.

The facility is committed to confining individuals responsibly and humanely, maintaining their dignity, and ensuring they leave in no worse physical or psychological condition than upon entry. With a belief in the potential for change, the center offers opportunities for inmates to engage in community-based programs that promote positive change, self-esteem, and a law-abiding lifestyle.

Visitation Information

During incarceration at the Park County Detention Center, inmates may receive visits from family and friends. Visitation is a privilege granted to the inmate, rather than the visitor. To be eligible for visits, inmates must have either had their initial court appearance or have been incarcerated for at least 72 hours. Individuals wishing to visit must call to set up an appointment, which can be scheduled any time before 5:00 p.m. on the Friday preceding the desired weekend visit. Visitors are not permitted to bring anyone with them into the visit booth who has not been scheduled. The maximum occupancy for a visit booth is two adults or one adult and two juveniles.

Inmates may be scheduled for a maximum of three visits per weekend (Saturday/Sunday), with each visit lasting approximately 40 minutes. Any violation of the visitation rules by either the inmate or the visitor will result in the termination of that visit and may lead to the suspension of future visits.

Attorney visits do not count against the inmate's three personal visits. Additionally, inmates may receive visits from clergy members on Tuesdays, which also do not count against the three personal visits. Clergy visits must be scheduled any time prior to 8:00 p.m. the evening before the allowed day.
