When someone you care about gets locked up, it's tough to figure out all the ins and outs of jail life. From sending mail to visiting, there are a lot of things to sort out.

The Iron Co Jail is a detention center located at 2136 N Main St Cedar City, UT which is operated locally by the Iron County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Iron County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Cedar City Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Utah here.

The Iron County Jail provides secure housing for:
• pretrial detainees and other un-sentenced inmates awaiting judicial actions
• inmates convicted of misdemeanor offenses
• convicted felons
• juveniles detained as a result of orders from the juvenile court
• other persons as required by state law
The Iron County Jail meets its mission to instill the concept of personal responsibility–to the extent possible with the very limited average length of stay in jail–by making rules, regulations and policies allowing:
• Work Programs
• Educational programs that promote skills and attitudes which will increase the likelihood of success upon re-entry to the community
• Incentives for good behavior
• Accountability for misconduct
