Mailing Address, Phone Number, and Rules for Correspondence

Inmates at the Daggett County Jail can make, but not receive, phone calls.  Since phone calls cost a fee, and inmates are not allowed to have cash in their possession while in custody, the inmate will need to have money added to his or her account.

To add money to your loved one’s account, simply mail a money order or cashier’s check to the facility, made out to Daggett County Jail.  Letters and deposits should be mailed to the following address:

P.O. Box 579
Manila, UT 84046

Be sure to clearly print the inmate’s name on the check.  This will help to speed up processing.  Mail should not contain or depict pornography, obscenity, criminal activity, or gang signs.  All mail will be screened.  Most non-letter items are prohibited as contraband, and, needless to say, illegal items like drugs or guns can lead to prosecution.

Once your loved one has funds in his or her account, he or she can start calling you, provided the facility isn’t on lockdown and there aren’t any disciplinary issues.  But first, there’s one more step: you’ll also need to set up a phone account.  To create a phone account for the Daggett County Jail, or if you have any questions or complaints, call the jail’s phone service company, Securus, at (800) 844-6591.  Prompts will guide you through the process.

Please keep in mind that the jail will not forward any messages to inmates.  If there is ever an emergency situation, call the jail at (435) 784-3518.  Jail hours are 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday.  As of early 2016, points of contact are Lt. Ben Lail and Sgt. Richard Cook.
