Utah Department of Corrections

The Utah Department of Corrections invites interested community members to attend Focus, a discussion forum. The next meeting will occur virtually on September 21 at 6 p.m.

You can join the meeting via Zoom by either computer or phone. The meeting ID is 939 5639 6802. Once the presentation is complete, you can ask questions through the chat feature or submit ahead of time to kefelsted@utah.gov.

In this upcoming session, we plan to discuss the New Correctional Facility being built in Salt Lake City, a few miles west of the SLC airport.

We're excited to share how this facility will provide opportunities to expand treatment and evidence-based programming, and enable us to move toward direct supervision.

Our public forums are an opportunity to engage families and friends of incarcerated individuals, and community members in a dialogue around a specific topic in order to share information and address concerns.

Families and friends play such a critical role in an offender's success, and it's important to us that we provide them with the information and resources they need to support their loved one.

For questions, please reach out to Kaitlin Felsted, Communications Director, at kefelsted@utah.gov or 801-560-7608.

If you have specific questions regarding your incarcerated loved one, or Corrections in general, we encourage you to continue utilizing our public website or contact us at corrections@utah.gov / 801-545-5500.
