The Administrative Services Division (ASD) is a unique entity as it provides support for all
divisions within the Utah County Sheriff’s Office while simultaneously serving the citizens of Utah
County through the specialized functions and programs it offers. The ASD has stewardship over Police
Conduct, Department wide Training, Firearms, Records, and the RadKids program. Employees in the ASD
are committed to excellence as they are acutely aware of the important responsibilities they perform
which directly affect the quality of life that our citizens experience and the ability of Sheriff’s
Office personnel to effectively and competently perform their jobs.
The Enforcement Division is responsible for the delivery of those services traditionally associated
with police operations. It is composed of two bureaus responsible for all Patrol, Investigations,
and other specialized duties. The Division provides service to the unincorporated areas of the county
as well as multiple recreation and canyon areas. The Division also serves seven municipalities that
contract with the Sheriff’s Office for their law enforcement services.
The Enforcement Division's purpose is to serve and protect the citizens of Utah County by
responsibly enforcing the laws. Deputies receive extensive training, not only in being extremely
competent in police skills, but also in conducting themselves in a professional manner that fosters
a good harmonious relationship with the community. We understand that to be truly effective public
servants we must have the help and cooperation from citizens who know their community and
neighborhoods better than anyone. By earning the citizens trust, we can work together in a
corroborative effort that will allow all of us to live in a safer, more peaceful, community.
The Sheriff of Utah County is responsible for protecting the citizens of Utah County by providing
a secure holding facility for persons legally confined in the county. The Utah County Jail will
protect the public by providing a secure, humane environment for the incarceration of those persons
accused or convicted of violating the law. The management philosophy of the Sheriff and his staff is
based upon the following assumptions:
- Incarceration is punishment, in and of itself.
- All inmates and staff will be held accountable for their actions.
- The opportunity for offender reintegration into society is founded in humane treatment and
The primary goal of the Corrections Facility is to provide inmates the opportunity to participate
in and benefit from educational, treatment and rehabilitative programs. These programs are intended
to enable inmates to re-enter the community better prepared to deal with their responsibilities as a
contributing community member.
The Support Service Division consists of four different bureaus, the District Court Bureau, Judicial Support Bureau, Emergency Service Bureau, and the Wild Land Fire Bureau. Each Bureau is very different and has very separate and special duties that support the Sheriff’s Office.
