First and foremost, the Chaves County Detention Center has been around since 1845. Since the first day of operation at the Chaves County Detention Center, the Chaves County Sheriff’s Department was the agency involved in managing and overseeing the daily operation.

The Chaves County Sheriff’s Department was first established around the late 1700s and was in the same location until they built the new sheriff’s department and included the Chaves County Detention Center.

The Chaves County Detention Center was in constant operation from the time it was built in 1845 to 1971. The Chaves County Detention Center closed its doors until the mid-1980s.
