All visitors must pass through a metal detector. If you have a medical condition that may set off the metal detector, please be prepared to provide proof from your doctor detailing which part of your body might set off the detector (such as hip or knee replacements). It is important to do this before your first visit to eliminate the possibility of being turned away. Visitors with metal implants may be asked to submit to a clothed pat search.

Visitors are expected to read and understand all of the following rules:

  • Visitation is a privilege, not a right, afforded to inmates/visitors under the jurisdiction of the Utah Department of Corrections.
  • Visitors shall comply with all Department rules, policies and procedures.
  • Visitors are subject to search of their person, personal belongings and vehicle upon entering all prison facilities. Visitation may be denied for failure to submit to such search request.
  • Illegal and nuisance contraband is strictly prohibited.
  • Falsification of any visiting form may result in a visiting suspension.
  • Visitors who have questions regarding the rules, regulations and procedures are responsible to ask staff for clarification in order to thoroughly understand them.
  • Visitors not in compliance with visiting rules shall be warned and/or required to leave the visiting area.
  • Visiting rules apply without exception to all Utah correctional facilities. Due to the security concerns unique to maximum-security units and off-site medical facilities, additional rules may apply.
  • All adult visitors shall submit a renewal form annually. If visiting staff determine that a visitor has submitted an annual renewal form, staff shall notify the inmate or visitor. If visiting staff does not received a renewal form within 30 days, they shall remove the visitor from the inmate's approved visiting list.
  • All minor visitors will be automatically removed from an inmate's visiting list, without notification, on the minor's 18th birthday. It is the responsibility of the inmate to submit an adult application, prior to the minor's 18th birthday.
  • The Department shall not be responsible for the loss of personal items brought on prison property.
