COVID 19.

The Bent County Jail was expanded from 52 Inmate Capacity to 94 Inmate Capacity. This gives us the ability to contract more Inmates from Department of Corrections and other Counties to help off-set the cost of the Jail Facility. Covid 19 Has the Jail Population consistently lower than average at this time.

Homewav will be installing a video visitation system into the Jail in the months of October and November. Once this is complete our visitation will be back opened through this system. This comes at no cost to the County.

The Sheriff's Office is on a temporary hiring freeze as well as a modified temporary financial program to limit Sheriff's Office spending to assist the County with COVID 19 budget overages.

The Patrol division welcomed 5 new/used Patrol vehicles replacing 4 2012 Impalas.
