This Bureau is under the command of an assigned Lieutenant who reports directly to the Captain of the Detention Services Division. The Central Identification Services Bureau is comprised of Booking and Release, Detention Records and Warrants, Housing Contracts and the 287(g) Unit.
Booking and Release - Booking and Release processes inmates from numerous Law Enforcement Agencies, ranging from: local police departments and county offices, to state and federal agencies. The process begins with the completion of a medical assessment to determine the medical needs an inmate may have. Utilizing a computerized booking process, inmates are screened, classified, scheduled for court, fingerprinted, photographed and iris scanned. Once changed in to a standard jail uniform, inmates are transferred to the Housing Services Bureau for housing.
Records and Warrants - These civilian personnel handle all records pertaining to individuals who enter into our facility and/or when a warrant is issued for an arrest by a court. Civilian employees assist in the booking and release process of inmates, allowing trained Detention Officers to handle the custody and control of inmates, their primary mission. A warrant search may be done through this website using the link in the top dropdown menu.
Housing Contracts - The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is committed to fiscal responsibility, and lessening the burden on the taxpayers of the county. Toward this end, the Detention Services Division routinely houses federal detainees from the United States Marshall’s Office, generating annual income for the county to help offset operating costs.
287(g) - All inmates are processed through the Immigration Customs and Enforcement 287(g) unit, by federally trained YCSO Detention Officers, to verify their legal status in the United States. If found to be undocumented, the 287(g) unit ensures a detainer is placed on the inmate, remanding them into federal custody once local charges are adjudicated.
