The mission of the Navajo County Detention Center is to provide for community safety, facility security and the welfare of staff and inmates. Facility operations comply with the standards for local detention facilities set forth by the National Sheriff’s Association, the American Correctional Association and the National Commission on Correctional Health Care. The primary function of the detention center is to safely and securely detain both pre-trial detainees and county sentenced inmates. However, staff members understand that inmates are subject to deprivations resulting merely from confinement and that their role is not to inflict punishment, but to make the inmate’s period of confinement as productive as possible.
The date and time for the visit is determined by which housing unit the inmate has been assigned to and is the responsibility of the inmate to let their visitors know when and where. An inmate is allowed one 30 minute visit per week.
