The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility is fortunate to have more than 150 volunteers donate their time to
help with various inmate programs. More than 75 programs are offered to inmates on a weekly basis and are staffed predominantly
by volunteers. Volunteers facilitate A.A. meetings and numerous religious services each week. They also tutor inmates in Adult
Basic Education Classes and help in the Detention Facility Library. Additionally, we have Professional Clergy volunteers who
meet with inmates on an individual basis to provide counseling and religious support.
We are very grateful to have such a successful volunteer program at the Detention Center. Volunteers report that they find
their volunteer experience to be very rewarding. In fact, we have several dedicated volunteers who generously have volunteered
in the Detention Facility for more than 20 years.
