Although most of its habitues hardly own up to it, a few will proudly say that "I spent the night in the Davis County Jail."
As part of the opening and dedication ceremonies of the county's new $20 million justice complex in west Farmington, invited guests will be able to spend a night in one of the jail's 400 beds the evening of Friday, May 31.The guests - who will pay $25 for the privilege - will check in at 7 p.m. and spend the night, said corrections division Sgt. Dan Horton.
Public tours of the new complex will be held 1-9 p.m. Monday through Friday, May 20-24.
At noon Wednesday, May 15, dedication of the Davis County Peace Officer Memorial will be held. The memorial, with a monument, plaque and three flagpoles, is under construction in the circular driveway in front of the complex.
Separate dedication ceremonies are planned for the 2nd District Court facilities included in the complex.
