Utah Department of Correctionsw

The Utah Department of Corrections is a government agency dedicated to the management and supervision of convicted felons in the State of Utah. It has its headquarters in the Utah Department of Corrections Administration Building in Draper.

The Utah Department of Corrections has jurisdiction over approximately 6,500 incarcerated offenders. These inmates are housed at the Utah State Prison in Draper, Utah, the Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison, Utah, and in many county jails around the state with which the Department has contracts. Presently, there are 10 inmates on Utah's death row.

The Utah State Prison in Draper, Utah, first began housing state inmates in 1951. Today, it has the capacity to hold approximately 4,500 offenders within eight housing facilities. USP houses both male and female offenders and offers a variety of programming opportunities, including education, vocational training, sex-offender treatment and intensive residential substance abuse treatment programs for male and female offenders.

The Central Utah Correctional Facility, located in Gunnison, Utah, first opened in 1990. Today, it has the capacity for 1,500 male offenders within two housing facilities. CUCF offers a variety of programming opportunities for offenders housed in Gunnison, including education, vocational training and an intensive residential substance abuse treatment program.

The Division of Programming at the Utah Department of Corrections was created in April 2007 to emphasize the importance of programming in achieving offender success. Research has repeatedly shown that education, vocational training and treatment are vital components to reduced recidivism rates. To that end, UDC programming staff continues to work tirelessly to expand programming opportunities for offenders while streamlining the process across all areas of the Department.
