Temporary IDs offered to some Pueblo County jail inmates

Posted: Updated:
PUEBLO COUNTY -

The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office is now giving some inmates temporary ID cards designed to help them transition to back to society after time behind bars. 

The Sheriff's Office said the cards are accepted statewide to obtain Colorado-issued birth certificates, which can then be used to help get a drivers license or social security card and assist with their transition outside of jail.

“There is a great need among the population we have in our jail for this service,” Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor said in a news release. “I’m pleased we are now one of only two jails in the state to offer this official ID, which allows individuals that leave our jail to more easily begin the process of moving on to a successful life.”

The cards are issued when a person is released from jail and is valid for 60 days. They contain a photo of the person along with important information. 

Currently, only inmates in the behavioral services programs at the jail can request cards, but the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office said the goal is to have all inmates gain access to the cards.
