Visits by members of the clergy can provide an inmate with needed guidance and advice. The Weber County Correctional Facility welcomes qualified clergy visits to members of their congregation; however, there are certain restrictions and rules that do need to be adhered to.
Requirements to Visit as a Member of the Clergy…
- To schedule the visit, call (801) 778-6702 or (801) 778-6787, at least 24 hours prior to the time you wish to visit.
- You must be the head of the congregation; i.e., bishop, pastor, priest, stake president, etc .
- You must bring proof of clergy status to the visit.
- You will be allowed one visit per two week period. (This visit will not count against the inmate’s visitation limit)
Or, if you choose, you may schedule a visit through the normal visiting process. In this case, the visit will count as one of the inmate’s allotted visit.
The Weber County Jail provides a variety of religious services. Inmates may attend any religious meetings available for their housing unit. We also provide various religious material for in-cell study\reading.

Inmate Grievance System
Inmates may utilize a grievance system while incarcerated to file complaints that directly concern them.
The Weber County Jail has rules that inmates must follow. If an inmate violates facility rules, he/she may be charged with the violation. An Inmate Disciplinary Hearing Officer (IDHO) judges these complaints in an administrative due process hearing. If the inmate is found guilty, the IDHO may impose a sanction on the inmate, which may include loss of visitations, loss of commissary, punitive isolation, and/or payment of restitution.
The Weber County Jail contracts with an outside vendor for inmate meals.
When an inmate has the appropriate classification, he/she may apply for the privilege of working within the facility. Inmates may be paid a small hourly stipend. Some examples of the jobs available are: Culinary Workers, Librarian, Custodial Services, and Laundry Services.
