It's here to help you get a handle on how things work at Teton County WY Detention Center so you can stay connected and support your loved one behind bars.

The Teton Co Jail is a detention center located at 175 S Willow St Jackson, WY which is operated locally by the Teton 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. Teton County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Jackson 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.

Built in 1986, the Detention Center initially held only 35 inmates. An expansion in 2003 increased its capacity to its current level of 45. This capacity is relatively small compared to many detention centers, which can house hundreds of inmates.

The facility serves Teton County, Wyoming, detaining pre-trial detainees and sentenced inmates for various local and federal agencies. The Detention Center operates within the Sheriff's Office and is overseen by a Support Lieutenant and sergeants. Detention officers and deputies are responsible for inmate management, including care, custody, and control. This aligns with the typical staffing structure of detention centers, where security personnel ensure the safety and well-being of the inmate population.

The Detention Center offers various services to inmates, including medical care, visitation, religious services, access to a library, and even substance abuse programs. While not all detention centers provide such a comprehensive range of services, some level of medical care and visitation is common [refer to general knowledge].

Detention officers undergo extensive training, including a basic course at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy. This training equips them with skills like firearm use, control techniques, and first aid. Ongoing training ensures these skills are maintained, which is a standard practice here.
