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 Pretrial 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.
