A detention officer's overall goal is the safe and smooth operation of jails and juvenile detention centers. They must monitor inmates to see that they are not causing harm to themselves or others. If fights occur, detention officers are responsible for breaking up the situation and reporting all misdemeanors to the warden. Detention officers may also be responsible for ensuring the safe transport of prisoners from pretrial detention facilities to courtrooms and standing guard while they await sentencing

The mission of the Garfield County Sheriff's Office is to provide solutions for the people through professional, ethical and compassionate conduct.
