Utah State Records

Utah Inmate Records

Utah inmate records contain a compilation of personal and official information of persons detained or serving jail sentences within the jurisdiction of the state of Utah. In compliance with U.S. law, all or some of this information may be obtained by interested persons depending on the authority of the requestor. These records include the full name, nationality, gender and date of birth of detainees housed in the state, county or city-run correctional facilities. Other information contained in the records may include criminal information and charges of the inmates as well as their DOC numbers, bail/bond amounts, sentences, and impending court or release dates.

Utah Correctional System

The Utah Department of Corrections is charged with overseeing the operations of correctional facilities situated within state limits. Such facilities include jails, detention centers and penal institutions managed at the state or county level. While each of these facilities often run different schedules and are operated by some unique guidelines, the state department of corrections serves as the chief administrator of all corrections and jail-related concerns of the state.

Utah State Prison System

Unable to house all inmates in the state, the Utah Prison System launched an inmate placement program which was an offshoot of the state's county jail program. As of 2010, the state eliminated all private prisons leaving 2 state prisons and 20 county jails. Inmates who are selected to be detained at the county level are chosen based on a variety of factors including their criminal and institutional history, medical and mental needs, security level and possible affiliations.

Essentially, most inmate records are maintained and disseminated by corrections staff of the individual facilities as well as the state corrections department. Primarily, county jails are run by the law enforcement agencies of the country, while state facilities are managed by the department of corrections.

How do I Locate Inmates in Utah State Jails and Prisons?

If the location of an inmate is unknown, inquiries may be made to the Public Information Unit of the Utah Department of Corrections. The unit is charged with providing details of the housing location of current inmates of the state. However, the department does not disseminate information on individuals who have been discharged. Alternatively, inmate location information may be obtained using the Department's online offender search tool. In either case, the requestor will be required to provide the personal information of the detainee-- i.e. the full name, gender and/or date of birth of the inmate.

How do I Visit Inmates In Utah Prisons and Jails?

As per state laws, all detainee visitors must be listed on the Inmates Visiting List in order to be eligible to see them. Thus, persons who wish to be included on the list must complete the applicable form on the Visitor Application Forms page. The form may also be downloaded and completed by the inmate, and must legibly state the inmate’s and visitors' personal details as well as their relationship.

The completed application must then be accompanied by the indicated documents and a self-addressed, stamped envelope (if the requestor wishes to be notified of the application response). Submissions may be made to the county jail facility where the inmate is located or:

Utah State Prison Visiting Office
P. O. Box 250
Draper, UT 84020
Phone: (801) 576-7051

Or

Central Utah Correctional Facility Visiting Office
P. O. Box 898
Gunnison, UT 84634
Phone: (435) 528-6500

Applicants who meet the state eligibility requirements will be contacted in 21 to 45 days of their application. Approved visitors are advised to become conversant with the visitation guidelines of Utah correctional facilities, and all visits must be scheduled with the correctional facility beforehand.

Contacting Incarcerated Persons In Utah

Utah state inmates may be contacted via U.S mail but may not receive incoming calls. However, inmates may make outgoing phone calls to approved persons as required by state directives. To be contacted by an inmate via phone, interested persons may set up an account with the approved vendor of the Utah Department of Corrections. This can also be done by calling (888) 506-8407. For more information regarding the setup process, queries may be made to (801) 576-7684.

Letters sent to inmates must not include any photos larger than 8x10, or photos of/including themselves or pornographic content. Letters must be on a single-layer white paper and enclosed in a single layer white envelopes without any paint, chalk, crayons, markers or highlighters on the envelope or its contents. All letters must be addressed as follows

  1. Inmate name and offender number
  2. Facility name
  3. Facility address
  4. P.O. Box

How do I Send Money to an Inmate in Utah?

Inmate account deposits are generally made through facility approved vendors. Essentially, family and friends of a detainee may contact the facility where the inmate is held for information about the process.

For state-run prisons, deposits can be made via Access Corrections and CashPay Today. The process requires downloading and completing the Download Payment Form for deposits made via mail, or by calling (866) 345-1884 -- phone transactions attract a $6.95 service charge.

In-person deposits may be made at kiosks in visiting areas, and this attracts a 3.50 per transaction fee cash transfers and $3.95 per transaction fee for credit or debit card payments.

The payer will be required to provide the inmate's full name, housing location, and offender in order for the payment to be processed. All queries relating to inmate deposits and accounting may be made to (844) 340-2274.

How to Find Information on Inmates in Utah Jails and Prisons

Most county jail facilities operate independent online search tools with which interested persons can search for detainee information. The information obtained by using such tools may include details of the inmate's location, arrest, booking information, primary charges, bail or bond conditions, and prospective court dates.

The Utah Department of Corrections maintains a unified database of incarcerated persons in the state and operates an Offender Search tool with which statewide inmate information searches can be made. Interested members of the public may conduct offender searches using the first and last names of the detainee or their offender name. Information unavailable by searching the tool may be obtained by querying the corrections staff of the facility where the inmate is located (see jail locations and contact information above).
