Commissioner Leon’s Roundtable Advisory Board Visits Downtown Detention Facility

Commissioner Carlos Leon’s Roundtable took a tour of the El Paso County Detention Facility on July 16, 2014. This maximum security facility is located at 601 E. Overland with a housing capacity of 1000 inmates. 


On this highly informative tour, the advisory board was able to see first-hand the daily duties and management that the jail requires on a routine basis. During the two hour tour, Detention Officer Telles and Commander Vargas thoroughly answered an array of questions asked by the board.
