Rifle Correctional Center


The Rifle Correctional Center is a 192-bed Level I minimum security facility, which is located on a 75-acre site in rural Garfield County in Western Colorado. The facility originally opened in the 1960s as a satellite labor camp and has evolved over time to its present format. Our current programming continues to maintain a community-based labor service but has expanded to include secondary education, vocational training, and a reintegration program intended to reduce recidivism.
