Annotation: STANDARDS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPREHENSIVE CORRECTIONAL CODE IN UTAH ARE PRESENTED BY THE UTAH COUNCIL ON CRIMINAL JUSTICE ADMINISTRATION.
Abstract: THE CORRECTIONAL CODE INCLUDES STATUTES GOVERNING SERVICES FOR PERSONS AWAITING TRIAL, SENTENCING, PROBATION, COMMUMITY TREATMENT PROGRAMS, INSTITUTIONAL PROGRAMS, PAROLE, AND PARDON. TOGETHER WITH CONSTITUTIONAL ENACTMENT, COURT DECISIONS, AND ADMINISTRATIVE RULES AND REGULATIONS, LEGISLATIVE STATUTES WITH REGARD TO CORRECTIONS CONSTITUTE A STATE'S CORRECTIONAL LAW. LIKE OTHER STATES, UTAH DOES NOT HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE CORRECTIONAL CODE ADDRESSING ALL OF THE AREAS NOTED. STANDARDS ARE SET FORTH CONCERNING THE UNIFICATION OF CORRECTIONAL PROGRAMS, COMPREHENSIVE CORRECTIONAL LEGISLATION, CODE OF OFFENDER RIGHTS, INTERSTATE COMPACT AGREEMENTS, INTRASTATE AGREEMENTS, COMMUNITY-BASED PROGRAMS, AND PAROLE LEGISLATION. THE STANDARDS ARE ACCOMPANIED BY DISCUSSIONS OF THE STATUS OF UTAH CORRECTIONAL STATUTES AND BY SUGGESTED METHODS FOR IMPLEMENTING THE STANDARDS. THE STANDARDS CALL FOR UTAH TO ENACT LEGISLATION BY 1978 TO UNIFY ALL CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS TO ALLOW CLOSER COORDINATION OF INTERDEPENDENT PROGRAMS, EFFECTIVE USE OF RESOURCES, AND DEVELOPMENT OF BETTER PROGRAMS ACROSS THE SPECTRUM OF CORRECTIONS.
