Good Time

Good time is calculated by not only good behavior, but also by the participation in programs. Booking cannot calculate good time, so please don’t ask. Working in the jail may help them to accrue more good time. Usually at a rate of 10 days per month, where as no participation will only earn five days per month.

Inmate Visitation

Inmate Visitation It usually takes 3-5 business days for inmates to be eligible for visitation. If you want to schedule a visit, please review the information on the Jail Visitation FAQs page.

Standard Release Time

Our standard release time for anyone who has been to court that day is at 3:15 PM. We ask the public to wait until that time before they come down to pick them up. This gives us enough time to process the paperwork after the prisoner returns to jail from court.


If you are bailing out a friend or family member, you may use a credit card for this process. Keep in mind that there will be an additional charge for the transaction. We cannot take credit card payments over the phone. We must have the exact amount we tell you, no loose change, and no personal checks will be accepted. Cashiers checks and money orders must be made out to “The Utah County Jail."

Out Program

The Out Program is a 30-day program. It usually takes about two weeks to get a spot in the program. During this time, they participate in classes and can be evaluated by the Out Program staff for eligibility and placement at Foothill.
