Email correspondence is available through the SecureView® Tablets. To send an inmate email(s), set up an account with Securus Technologies:


Mail guidelines are detailed in the Inmate Information section of our website. 
When an inmate is released, their mail will be returned to sender. If the mail cannot be returned to sender, or the mail is being returned to the inmate, it may be picked up by the released inmate within 30 days of release. After 30 days, the mail will be destroyed. 

Our intake process includes a comprehensive medical assessment. If our medical professionals determine that medical care is needed, the individual must be seen by a medical provider outside of our facility and medically cleared prior to being booked. 

If isolation or quarantine is needed, we have plans and accommodations in place to provide it. 
The Life Safety Committee is an advisory committee for Davis County Correctional Facility. The primary goal of the committee is to alleviate any condition that may contribute unnecessarily to serious illness, injury, or death within the Correctional Facility, and to identify any physical, procedural, or other changes that may improve the safety and wellbeing of inmates or staff within the Davis County Correctional Facility. 

Releases typically begin at 8 am on the last day of a commitment.

If the commitment is two days or less, the inmate is released approximately the same hour that they were checked in or booked. 

To speak with an inmate, one must set up an account with our inmate phone services provider, Securus Technologies:

Once the account is set up and approved, and if the inmate has not lost privileges, the inmate can call you.
