Utah Correctional Industries trains and provides inmates with real-world work opportunities. Offenders employed through Utah Correctional Industries (UCI) produce useful products and services for customers while gaining the tools needed to succeed when released back to their communities.

Jobs help inmates stay positively engaged while serving time, reducing the idleness, boredom and hopelessness that can trigger management and security problems for staff, visitors, volunteers and other inmates.

The opportunity to engage in paid work through UCI is a powerful motivator for improving inmate behavior.

Within the prison, inmates' work opportunities include the Commissary, the sign shop, the furniture shop, the license plate shop, the print shop and the upholstery shop.

UCI also operates the Serving Time Cafe, a restaurant staffed by female inmates and open to the public. It is located adjacent to the prison at 14072 Pony Express Road in Draper. 

UCI also participates in the federal Private Industries Enhancement program, which allows qualified private companies to employ qualified inmates.

As required by State statute, UCI must be self-sustaining. UCI accomplishes this by providing products and services that match or exceed industry standards, while keeping prices lower than the industry standard.

Many clients have had high praise for the high quality of UCI's finished products.
