Gary Herbert and other state leaders are in the midst of a ground-up review of Utah’s corrections policy. “We’re calling on the foremost experts on public safety to create a new road map for our criminal-justice system,” Herbert said in a statement. “The prison gates must be a permanent exit from the system, not just a revolving door.” Work on the pr...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
