In order to visit clients at either the Utah State Prison in Draper or the Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison, you will need to fill out an application, available at the Warden’s Office at either facility. As part of the application, which must be renewed annually, you will need to provide your Utah State Bar card and pass a background check.
Prior to visiting with a client, you must check in with the Warden’s Office at each facility. At the Utah State Prison, the Warden’s Office is in the Stephen R. Anderson Building adjacent to the Wasatch Facility. At the Central Utah Correctional Facility, the Warden’s Office is in the main entrance building.
Client Telephone Calls
In limited circumstances, an attorney of record for an inmate may be able to set up a telephone call with a client. You will need to have an approved, valid application (listing your Utah State Bar number) and background check on file with the Warden’s Office at either the Utah State Prison or the Central Utah Correctional Facility.
To set up a telephone call, you will need to contact the Warden’s Office. If approved, the Warden’s Office will contact the appropriate case manager to arrange a call.
If you have received a court-approved expungement order on behalf of a client and would like to file it with the Utah Department of Corrections in an effort to update our records, please contact Lori Houskeeper at email@example.com or 801-545-5606.
Complaints, summons or other legal documents may be served on an inmate via the Warden’s Office by in-person delivery, fax or mail. There is no charge for this service. The inmate will be asked to sign the Department’s certification of service letter at the time of delivery; that form will then be mailed to the attorney as proof of service.
The fax number for the Utah State Prison Warden’s Office is 801-576-7481.

Visits with Specialists
