The Greenlee County Jail
The purpose of the Greenlee County Jail is to protect the community by securely
holding persons who are determined by the courts to pose a threat to public safety.
It is the ethical and legal obligation of the Greenlee County Jail Commander and
her detention officers to provide a safe, sanitary and secure place of incarceration.
We recognize, in the case of sentenced prisoners, they are being punished for their
crimes through their confinement. However, we strive to give every prisoner the
opportunity to rehabilitate themselves. It is our goal to return inmates to society
in better condition physically and emotionally than when they were committed to
our custody. However, the decision of rehabilitation is a personal decision that
can only be made by each individual inmate.
The Jail Commander and all detention officers strive to make the jail
a community institution, which is economically self-sufficient and provides needed
service to Greenlee County through inmate labor.
