Out of all of the Department of Corrections, the Utah Department of Corrections is relatively small. The Department of Corrections in Utah only really has two facilities under their belt. These facilities are Focal Utah Correctional Office and Utah State Jail.
However, they do have a handful of offices that deal with parole and probation protocols as well. But, lets’ be honest for a second, the Department of Corrections in Utah only really handles around 6,000 people yearly. That is quite a low number when you compare it to Nevada, New York, and Florida’s Department of Corrections.
The Department of Corrections in Utah does have a contract with at least 20 other correctional facilities. These facilities will allow the Department of Corrections to fill up a certain about of beds. This will offset some of the costs for the Department that only runs two penitentiaries.
This Department may be relatively smaller than some of the other states, but it still packs as big of a punch. They may not deal with many inmates, but they always focus on lowering that yearly number. But, they have it easier to maintain two penitentiaries instead of 10 like some other states.
