Mission Statement:


It is our mission to partner with the community to provide safe, secure, and constitutional detention in the most respectful, professional and responsible manner possible. We would like to clearly communicate the purpose, philosophy, and goals of this facility to the public, staff, and detainees.
Cibola County Detention Center is committed to the safety and security of its community, staff, and detainees. When persons are charged with violations of the law, it may be necessary to detain them. When persons are convicted and sentenced, for such violations, it may also be necessary to detain them. This is a service to the community and the offenders. The community may need the protection, and just the same, so may the offenders.
We all have families and loved ones that care for us, and are concerned for our well being. Care, custody, and control are the standards for detention facilities. Cibola County Detention Center has made it a priority to improve the environment within the detention center. As many know, tensions can be an issue when it comes being detained. Our facility recognizes the Civil and Constitutional rights of every individual. We are dedicated to the well being and health of its entire community, and its Detainees.
The Cibola County Detention Center is intended to provide care, custody, and control. We want everyone to know that if you, yourself, or a loved one is in our custody, these principals are followed and instituted from the top down, and the bottom up.
