The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office would like to notify the community of operational adjustments to our Main Office and Substations and at our Mohave County Adult Detention Facility in regards to COVID-19.
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is closely monitoring the situation as it pertains to our jail and is in close contact with the Mohave County Department of Public Health to receive up-to-date information regarding the spread of this disease.

At the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility:
 All volunteer services for inmates are suspended indefinitely, to include Chaplains, Alcoholics
Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, etc.
 All inmate work crews and projects outside the facility are suspended until further notice.
 All in-person inmate professional contact visits will require close review and approval, to include
Constables, Defense Investigators, Attorneys etc.
 Deep cleaning of all areas of the detention facility are being conducted. Proper hygiene of the staff and
inmates is being encouraged. Common areas of the inmate pods are being frequently disinfected and
inmates are being given proper cleaning materials to clean and disinfect their housing area.
 Extra screening procedures are being conducted by medical staff to evaluate incoming detainees for
possible signs and symptoms of COVID-19. If any incoming detainee displays signs of the virus, they
will be properly isolated until such time that a diagnosis can be determined.
 Staff are being encouraged to stay home if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of the disease (cough,
fever, shortness of breath). Our ultimate goal is to ensure the safety and health of our staff, inmates,
and community.

To our Main Office and Substations:
 Public ride-alongs have been suspended indefinitely.
 The use of our Training Room at our office in Kingman is suspended until further notice, following the
CDC’s recommendation of limiting large groups and gatherings.
 Suspending all outside special functions (community events)

possible to limit the exposure possibilities.
