About The Sheriff's Office

The Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office operates two correctional facilities; the Salt Lake County Metro Jail and the Oxbow Jail Facility. Both jails are highly efficient, designed to operate at low costs with an abundance of programs that minimize overcrowding issues while creating an approach that reduces recidivism. Salt Lake County’s Protective Services Division prides itself on meeting the diverse challenges of effective crime prevention by transitioning between law enforcement authority, prisoner management, government security and public service.

In addition to our Corrections Bureau and Protective Services Division; the Sheriff’s Office is also home to Search and Rescue, the Mounted Posse, Human Resources and Fiscal Divisions. With over 1,100 employees and volunteers, the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office takes pride in its role as a leader in public safety and community service.
