Studies have shown that inmates who visit regularly with supporters have a markedly improved chance of success when they are eventually released back into the community.
It is, however, important to review visitation regulations prior to attempting to meet with an offender, whether he or she is housed at the Utah State Correctional Facility, Central Utah Correctional Facility or in one of the county jails.
You can find information about our regulations below, as well as current visiting schedules here.
Please check our website regularly to find out whether any special conditions apply to the facility you plan to visit. The conditions may change daily.
