A weeklong open house in May will allow the public to tour the new $20 million Davis County Justice Complex, which includes a 400-bed jail, sheriff's administrative center and state courts.
Although the complex will not formally be dedicated until June, the sheriff and county commissioners say the complex is far enough along in construction to hold the open house and tours in mid-May.A memorial to county peace officers - featuring three flagpoles and a monument - in the center of the complex's circular drive will be dedicated at noon Wednesday, May 15.
An open house with sheriff's department personnel available for guided tours will run 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 18, and 1 to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, May 20-24, sheriff Glenn Clary announced.
Two special open-house days with tours are planned for county employees and other law enforcement officers in the county.
A family appreciation day, with tours planned specifically for county employees and their families, will be held 1 to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 16. Law enforcement day, designed for law enforcement officers from other cities and jurisdictions in the county and their families, is set for 1-9 p.m. Friday, May 17.
Commission chairman Gayle Stevenson said a formal dedication for the complex will be held sometime in June. The county will dedicate the jail and sheriff's administrative office, and the state, which leases space for district and domestic relations courts, will hold a separate dedication ceremony.
