The rules for visitors at the Salt Lake County Jail include the following:
Visitation at the Salt Lake County Jail generally is scheduled daily between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. However, an inmate’s visiting day is determined by his/her housing location and security classification. To find out the visiting day of a particular inmate, contact the jail at 801-743-5000.

Prisoners are permitted two (2) visits per week and three visitors will be allowed to visit a prisoner. (At Oxbow, due to space limitations, only two visitors are permitted per visit). Children 17 years and under must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. An adult must accompany a child wanting to visit their parent or legal guardian.
