Utah Department of Corrections

The Utah Department of Corrections recognizes that having a father, mother, husband, wife, brother, sister, son, daughter or other member of one's extended family sent to prison can be devastating. This section of our website is designed to help friends and family understand what happens when a loved one is in prison and what resources are available to navigate through this difficult time.

We appreciate your interest in what happens in prison and your on-going support for your loved one, which is critical to an offender's success and ability to rejoin the community as a law-abiding citizen.
