What is UCAP?

UCAP is an in-community supervision program for non-violent, drug involved offenders residing in Utah County. Our participant centered, targeted intervention, uses in-community supervision, to help participants learn to make permanent, positive changes in criminalistic and addictive behaviors. Entry into UCAP’s program requires participants to live within Utah County, throughout the entire probation term.

The UCAP program is administered by the Utah County Sheriff's Office in partnership with Wasatch Behavioral Health, and in conjunction with the Utah County Attorney's Office, the Utah County Justice Court, and the Utah County 4th District Court.

UCAP is a phased program of decreasing intensity, followed by a monitoring period, to include the duration of the probation period. Each UCAP phase may consist of a curfew, required check-ins, field visits, UA drug testing and treatment requirements. The duration and requirements of each phase is dependent upon the participant’s assessments and performance while in the program.
