Question: What is Good Time?
Answer: Good Time is time credited against an
inmates sentence and is awarded based on good institutional behavior,
positive participation in programs, work or to reward other commendable
Statutory Good Time may be awarded by the
custodial authority (Jail). Statutory Good Time is 10 days
credit for every 30 days served, or "10 for 30".
Any other Good Time must be awarded by the judge.
Question: How does an inmate receive Good Time?
Answer: Good Time may be awarded by the judge
at the time of sentencing. If the judge does not order Good Time,
inmates must request Good Time from the Jail. The jail may, at its
discretion, award statutory Good Time according to Jail policy and
Inmates are not eligible for Good Time when the
judge orders that no Good Time be awarded or when the inmate is
under the jurisdiction of the Utah Dept. of Corrections (B.O.P.)
or U.S. Marshalls Service (Federal inmate).

and accepted by jail management committees to be eligible to participate
on Community Service work details. Inmates participating in Community
Release Programs must sign an agreement and abide by the terms of
the agreement while participating. If an inmate fails to abide by
the terms of the agreement, the inmate may be terminated from Community
Release programs at the discretion of Jail officials.
