New courts building

The state courts building is under construction on the site of the new Emery County Public Safety Complex. The building will house the state courts system. With the construction of this facility, inmates will no longer have to be transported to the court house. They will attend court and never leave the building. The jail facility and the courts building will be connected and the inmates will pass through a hallway and up into the courts building. Emery County Sheriff Lamar Guymon said, "This will help us out a lot. It will reduce the number of officers and the amount of time it takes to escort the inmates to any court proceedings they are required to attend. This will also ensure the safety of the public and our officers. Every time a prisoner is transported, there is some risk involved."

The inside floors were poured recently and the outer shell of the building is in place. Electrical work is also being done. The building is expected to be completed in December. The offices of the Emery County Attorney will also be moved to the new jail facility.

Sheriff Guymon also said surveillance cameras are operating at the site.
