Colorado Inmate Records

Inmate records contain official records of individuals detained, booked, or incarcerated in correctional inmate facilities at the county or state level in Colorado. These documents are available to interested members of the public per the Colorado Open Records Act.

Persons who obtain inmate records can expect to see the inmate's name and other personal information, physical descriptors, recent mugshot, as well as details of the offender's sentence and conviction. Besides these, public requesters also get to see the inmate's assigned facility, release date, and parole eligibility date (if applicable).

Inmate records are considered public in the United States and therefore are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:

  • The location of the sought-after record, including state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
  • The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.

Facilities Operated by the Colorado Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation

The oversight of Colorado's correction system falls under the Colorado Department of Correction (CDOC). This state agency manages 20 correctional inmate facilities where over 20,000 offenders are incarcerated.

What's the Difference Between Prisons and Jails?

The primary difference between Colorado prisons and jails is the agency responsible for their oversight. State prisons are controlled by the Colorado DOC, while the local law enforcement departments are in charge of jails.

How Do I Send Money to an Inmate in Colorado Prisons or Jails?

Friends and family members can send money to an offender using three payment companies: GTL, Western Union, and JPay. All three companies provide electronic mediums for payments. Members of the public can make electronic payments to incarcerated parties by either:

  • Paying online using a debit or credit card
  • Making payments over the phone using a credit or debit card

Interested persons can also make physical payments at any of the company locations in any part of the country. However, the amount of time required to process a payment and the rate for payment varies depending on the time of payment and the type of payment method used.

How Do I Visit an Inmate in Colorado Prisons or Jails?

Anyone may visit an inmate as long as their name appears on the inmate's approved visitors list. Generally, intending visitors must visit the jail admin office to obtain and complete a visitor application form — mail-in requests are also possible. Meanwhile, minors under 18 must submit a visitation form with the signature of the parent or legal guardian authorizing the visit.

The exact number of visitors permitted and the length of the visits varies with different facilities, depending on the amount of space and the facility's schedule. Most Colorado facilities have a dress code — best to wear business style clothing or dress semi-casual for visits.

How Do I Contact an Inmate in Colorado Prisons or Jails?

The public can contact offenders incarcerated in a Colorado facility by email, telephone, or U.S. mail. Generally, the sender must know the inmate's facility — confirm this by performing a Colorado prison inmate search — and send messages per departmental policies.

Phone calls are managed by the Colorado Inmate Phone System, while emails are sent over the JPay platform. Callers must have an active account to receive calls from currently incarcerated persons, while emails will require an active JPay account and an inmate DOC number. Messages sent by U.S. mail should include an addressed envelope that features the

  • Offender's name
  • Offender number
  • Facility name and mailing address
  • Return address.

How to Perform a Colorado Prison Inmate Search

The Colorado Department of Correction provides public access to general inmate information via a prison lookup tool. Members of the public can perform a free inmate search by name or the inmate's DOC number if known. Another way to perform an inmate lookup is to call (719) 226-488.

How to Perform a Colorado Jail Inmate Search

Most of the counties in Colorado provide public access to inmate information via the city police or county sheriff's website. For instance, the Denver Sheriff Department maintains a online Denver, Colorado inmate search tool that allows searches using a name or booking number. At the same time, the El Paso County Sheriff offers a similar tool that allows interested persons to find a person in jail by booking number or last name. In addition, the Arapahoe County Sheriff provides online Arapahoe inmate information on charges, bonds, and inmate information on its website. At the same time, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office manages a public inmate lookup tool that provides information on persons held in custody. Alternatively, interested parties can obtain information on inmates by contacting the county's support desk or sending a request to the local city police department.

The Difference between Colorado State Prisons and County Jail

The primary distinguishing factor between Colorado state prisons and county jails are the inmates housed in them. As of 2019, the Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC) operates eight state prisons for men and one women's prison. The DOC also oversees a system of county jails across the state.

Inmates in Colorado state prisons are classified according to their risk level, which is determined by the severity of their offense and criminal history. Low-risk inmates are typically housed in minimum-security facilities, while high-risk inmates are housed in maximum-security prisons.

Colorado's state prisons are located in the following cities: Canon City, Crowley, Denver, Limon, Pueblo, Sterling, and Trinidad. The state's women's prison is located in Denver.

The DOC offers a variety of programs and services to inmates, including education and job training. Inmates can also participate in work release programs, which allow them to work outside of prison while still serving their sentence.

The county sheriff's offices operate Colorado county jails. Inmates in county jails are typically awaiting trial or sentencing, or they may be serving a sentence of less than one year. Jails in Colorado are located in the following cities: Alamosa, Burlington, Cañon City, Durango, Glenwood Springs, Gunnison, La Junta, Lamar, Montrose, Rifle, Salida, and Steamboat Springs.

How Do I Find Out an Inmate Release Date?

Inmate release dates are generally available for public perusal on the online prison lookup tool. Where the release date is not available via inmate search, interested persons may contact the record custodian and provide the inmate's name or I.D. number.

Note, however, that an inmate's release date may be confidential if making the information public risks the inmate's safety. In that case, the record custodian will only tell persons with legitimate, tangible reasons, such as the inmate's immediate family members, legal representatives, and authorized criminal justice agency officials.
