The Utah Department of Corrections, a government agency funded primarily by tax revenue, has a duty to provide certain information to the public. Our goal is to be accountable and as transparent as possible about our operations, while balancing individual offender's privacy rights and the safety and security of our facilities, staff, inmates, volunteers and the general public. The department does not release information or prison photos for individuals whose sentences have been discharged.
Public information about inmates and offenders under our supervision includes:
- Date of Birth
- Legal Status (inmate, parolee, probationer)
- Offender Number
- Housing Location (i.e., Wasatch facility, Davis County Jail)
- Offenses/Sentence Length
- Board Hearing Date
- Parole/Expiration Date (Note: Utah is an indeterminate sentencing state, meaning sentences are given in time ranges rather than specific time periods. For example, an offender convicted of a 3rd-degree felony may receive a sentence of 0 to 5 years.)
- Sentencing Court/Sentencing Date/Case Number
- Prison Photo/Mug Shot
Requests for records or previously compiled data are managed by the Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) and must be made in writing.
