Yes; immediate family members can be included in the protection for qualified applicants. Pursuant to Utah Code §53-18-102 and §63G-2-30, Immediate Family Member means: a spouse, child, parent, or grandparent of an At-risk Government Employee or Law Enforcement who is living with the employee.

If you wish to have your or your eligible family member’s records protected from public disclosure, you may fill out the attached application (one for each eligible family member) and have it signed by the highest ranking elected or appointed official in your chain of command, certifying that you are an at-risk government employee or law enforcement officer.

The Utah State Legislature made a change to the original Records Protection statute, making applications valid for 4 years from the date the application was submitted to the Utah County Assessor’s office. If you submitted an application more than four (4) years ago, it has now expired. If you want your records protected, you will need to re-apply. The Utah County Assessor’s office will NOT notify you when your application has expired; it is your sole responsibility to re-apply for this protection every 4 years.
