We provide community safety, facility security, and ensure the health and well-being of staff and inmates. We are committed to providing individuals in our care and custody a productive period of confinement that gives them hope and builds positive life skills.
In a typical year, we have a daily population of approximately 800 inmates, which includes the Work Center—a separate facility that houses Work Release and Work Detail inmates.
Under the authority of the Sheriff, our operations are subject to careful oversight and compliance with the Utah Sheriffs’ Association Jail Standards. Our Correctional Facility is inspected annually to ensure the standards are being met, and additional oversight is provided by the Utah Department of Corrections, U.S. Marshals Service, Davis County Health Department Environmental Health Services, medical authorities, and state and local Fire Marshals.
