Jail Investigations entails investigating gangs, assaults, drug offenses, thefts, criminal mischief and various other crimes committed by the inmates at the 12th street and Kiesel Correctional Facilities. The investigators also file warrants of arrest for work release inmates, community service inmates and furloughed inmates who fail to return to the Weber County Correctional facility as scheduled.
Our unit coordinates with various local, state and federal agencies, to include the Joint Terrorism Task Force and Homeland Security, to share intelligence information. Gangs are a growing concern in Weber County. Gang intelligence information obtained in the Correctional Facility is useful for investigations inside the jail and to outside agencies. The investigators use jail intelligence information to document inmates as gang members. The investigators provide outside city, county, state, and federal agencies as well as the Weber County Attorney's Office with intelligence information to assist them with ongoing investigations. The information gathered by these investigators has been extremely valuable to agencies investigating criminal activity committed by gang members and to the prosecutors who try these cases within our court system.
