The Churchill County Detention Center, housed inside the Churchill County Sheriff's Office, opened in December 2017 and is a much-welcomed improvement over the older, overcrowded facility we used to have. The Detention Center primarily houses adults but can accept juveniles if they have been adjudicated as an adult and remanded to our custody by the Courts. The majority of our population are pre-trial inmates, who are housed here until they make bail or are awaiting trial.
The detention facility is rated as a 120-bed facility, however, operational capacity fluctuates between 65 and 80 based on classification of the inmates.
Use VINE to register for notification on changes to an inmate's custody status. The Nevada VINE system is a service through which victims of crime can use the telephone or Internet to search for information regarding the custody status of their offender and to register to receive telephone and e-mail notification when the offender's custody status changes. The VINE toll-free number for the Nevada VINE system is (888) 268-8463. This service is provided to assist Victims of Crime who have a right to know about their offender's custody status.
