Deputies are tasked with maintaining order and discipline within the jail, searching inmates and their housing units for contraband, transportation of inmates to medical appointments outside of the facility, responding to emergencies and many other duties. All Corrections deputies are mandated by the Utah Department of Public Safety to be Corrections certified through Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training and are required to participate in a minimum of 40 hours of job related training each year to maintain their State certification.
The Davis County Sheriff’s Office currently offers Academy training for Corrections deputies at no cost and pays the employee wages while attending the Academy. Academy training lasts approximately 12 weeks followed by a field training and probationary period of one year.
