The previous policy of waiting 72 hours before posting booking information has been changed to 24 hours
Some months ago, the Utah County Sheriff's Office enacted a 72 hour delay policy for the posting of Utah County Jail booking information. This was instituted to eliminate several serious issues, a concern over Police Officer and Correctional Institution safety, investigative case sabotage, and even a legitimate concern over the due process and civil rights of the accused who has been booked. As this policy has been in effect for several months, we have had the opportunity to observe its impact and have determined that we can achieve the same desired effects by decreasing the delay of posting to only 24 hours. Consequently, the policy has been modifed and the public now can access Utah County Jail Booking records after 24 hours.
