As part of its effort to be open and accountable to the public, Corrections aims to provide public records upon request in line with the Utah Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA). Corrections deals with certain issues that exempt records from release due to safety & security or privacy issues, but otherwise the agency strives to continually function in a transparent manner that instills confidence in the public.
To request records or previously compiled data from the Utah Department of Corrections, please send a formal, written request for information to:

What is GRAMA?
The Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) is a comprehensive law that deals with the management of government records. The law outlines exactly who has access to specific records, while detailing the process for requesting such information. GRAMA is an attempt to balance the public’s constitutional right of access to information regarding government conduct, individuals’ constitutional rights to privacy and the public policy and safety interest in allowing government to restrict access to certain records for the overall good.
