What People Want to Know

Why should we build better housing for inmates?

This isn't about building better housing for inmates. This is about providing a safer work environment for our staff, protection for the public, and liability protection for Page County. Additionally, the County is responsible for the health and safety of jail inmates and must provide a safe and humane environment but it doesn't mean the jail should be overly comfortable. Inmate accommodations will be simple and meet state codes.​

Who spends the most time in the jail?

​It's the staff who manage the inmate population: 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Why can’t the current jail be renovated?

The current jail is at the end of its useful life. 

What will the new project cost to build?
The concept design cost is estimated at $16.7 million for new Jail, Sheriff's Office, and 911/Dispatch Center.
