About the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office is a full-service law enforcement agency organized into three large entities:   Field Operations; Courts/Corrections; and, Administration.  All three are commanded by an assistant sheriff.  As a separate organizational function, the Riverside County Sheriff also acts as the County’s coroner.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office, “The mission of the Corrections Division is to serve and protect the citizens of Riverside County and the State of California, by detaining the people under its supervision in a safe and secure environment, while providing for their humane care, custody and control. The Division will maximize opportunities for offenders to participate in programs that reduce criminal behavior and enhance the offender's reintegration into the community. This objective will be accomplished in a cost-effective manner in the least restrictive setting, without compromising public safety.”  Corrections is accomplished at five facilities Blythe Jail Facility; Indio Jail Facility; Robert Presley Detention Center; Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility; and, Southwest Detention Center.
