The Detention Center is equipped to hold adult male and female persons.  It was opened in October of 1987 with a holding capacity of 63.  Our average daily inmate population in 2007 was 92.  With the expansion in 2018 we currently have 154 beds.  The majority of persons held in this facility are pre-trial, meaning they have been accused but not convicted of a criminal offense. Inmates have daily access to medical care. Due to HIPPA laws; medical issues of inmates are confidential and cannot be discussed with others. Commissary is offered two times a week; available items for order include hygiene items and food selections. Please note that cash money is the only thing accepted for inmates.

The adult detention facility is a division of the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office. The facility is operated twenty-four hours a day throughout the year.
