Jail Visitor Notification System

What is the Jail Visitor Notification System?

The Salt Lake County Sheriff provides this service to the friends and family of prisoners of the Salt Lake Metro and Oxbow Jail. This realtime status will inform you of unexpected closures of regularly scheduled visitation.

What Information Is Provided?

The system will provide the status of of the visitation area either "Open," or "Closed." If visitor area is listed as "Open," regular business hours and schedule apply. If the status is "Closed," the visitor area is closed to accepting visitors. Also, with each status there may be a comment listing the reason for the closure.

The system will also provide messages from Jail Administration on current events at the jail and items of importance to those that are visiting prisoners.
