RCDC Mission Statement

The mission of the Ravalli County Detention Center is the safe and secure confinement and management of persons who have been placed into our custody. To serve the citizens of Ravalli County to the best of our ability utilizing every resource made available to us.

The Ravalli County Detention Center will work in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, the courts, and the criminal justice system to ensure an individual is present for court appearances and to ensure the completion of court imposed sentences.

The Ravalli County Detention Center will confine persons in a responsible and humane manner that maintains self-dignity. The Ravalli County Detention Center will strive to ensure that individuals leave the facility in no worse condition, physically or psychologically,
than when they entered.

With the belief that change is always possible, the Ravalli County Detention Center will make opportunities available for inmates to become involved in community-based programs, which strive to promote change, self-esteem and a positive approach to a law-abiding lifestyle.

The Ravalli County Detention Center will provide a safe and positive work environment for staff. It will operate in accordance with the statutes of the State of Montana and the Constitution of the United States of America.

A Policy and Procedure manual is maintained to establish facility guidelines for the safety of staff and inmates, to insure that the operation of the Ravalli County Detention Center does not violate an individual’s Constitutional Rights and remains current with
State Statutes and Regulations.
