IMPORTANT NOTICE: Effective Monday, March 30, 2020, in an effort to maintain critical government services and to protect the health of the public and our employees, Corrections / Jail services will be provided by phone, email/online or appointments only. Please call 801-451-4200 for assistance. 

ADDITIONAL NOTICE: In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, effective November 17, 2020, public visiting is temporarily SUSPENDED at the Davis County Correctional Facility.

We appreciate your understanding and support as we all do our part to address the virus. 


The purpose of the Davis County Correctional Facility is to provide for community safety, facility security, and the welfare of staff and inmates. Under the authority of the Sheriff of Davis County, Utah, facility operations will comply with the Utah Jail Standards and State and Federal guidelines and laws.

The goal of the facility is to safely and securely detain all inmates. The inmates are classified to standardize the housing and placement of both pre-trial and sentenced inmates into appropriate custody levels on a consistent basis. It is the goal of the Davis County Correctional Facility to assist inmates in adapting physically and emotionally in the community upon their release and to encourage convicted offenders not to repeat their criminal activity.

Although inmates are subject to deprivations resulting from confinement, the role of the staff is not to inflict punishment but to make the inmates' period of confinement as productive as possible. 

Jail Information

Davis County Correctional Facility, also referred to as Davis County Jail, has the legal obligation to care for inmates held in custody. We have an average daily population of approximately 800 inmates, which includes the Work Center—a separate facility that houses Work Release and Work Detail Inmates.

Our operations are subject to careful oversight. The Utah Sheriff's Association sets the standards for jail operations, and our facility is inspected annually to ensure the standards are being met. Additional oversight is provided by the Utah State Department of Corrections, U.S. Marshals Service, Davis County Environmental Health, medical authorities and state and local Fire Marshals.

Our Corrections staff is comprised of dedicated and professional deputies who operate the facility safely, securely, and responsibly.
