I don't know if they do or not, but concealed is concealed.

As a fellow State Employee, I'm pretty sure you are OK. It would be wrong for the State to create a law allowing for concealed carry and then not allow employees on their own property to take advantage of it. I have mine with me now. Our policy is:

"Firearms and other deadly weapons are authorized for law enforcement personnel, or those persons with legal permits to carry concealed weapons."

I found that buried on the depths of our Department's policy.

The State Code States:

76-10-500. Uniform law.
(1) The individual right to keep and bear arms being a constitutionally protected right, the Legislature finds the need to provide uniform laws throughout the state. Except as specifically provided by state law, a citizen of the United States or a lawfully admitted alien shall not be:
(a) prohibited from owning, possessing, purchasing, selling, transferring, transporting, or keeping any firearm at his place of residence, property, business, or in any vehicle lawfully in his possession or lawfully under his control; or
(b) required to have a permit or license to purchase, own, possess, transport, or keep a firearm.
(2) This part is uniformly applicable throughout this state and in all its political subdivisions and municipalities. All authority to regulate firearms shall be reserved to the state except where the Legislature specifically delegates responsibility to local authorities or state entities. Unless specifically authorized by the Legislature by statute, a local authority or state entity may not enact or enforce any ordinance, regulation, or rule pertaining to firearms.

Since it's a state agency you're good to go as long as it's not a secure or otherwise prohibited by law location.

I don't know the law or what UDOT's policy is. However, I say carry always! Concealed is concealed and noone is going to find out unless you do something stupid like tell a co-worker. Which leads to point number two, don't tell anyone you carry!

Right or wrong my mother, recently retired Utah state UDOT permits officer, carried at work. A Springfield 1911 in the car and a Walther PPKS in her bag.

Both gifts from her loving son too!

I guess what they don't know won't hurt them. :?

Also dose anyone know how far behind BCI is with getting permits out? I thought there was a website that would tell you what week they're working on ?

Jack,

There is a site... here it is: http://bci.utah.gov/

HOWEVER, it USED TO SAY something like: "We are currently processing applications rec'd the week of xx-XXX-xx."

Today I noticed it now just says: "We are processing applications within 60 days as required by law." :(

I guess they figure as long as they are consistently conforming with law, that's all that should matter. And perhaps they're right. :?

I think they've beaten back their backlog and are now processing applications in a timely enough fashion that they no longer feel the need to update the site every day. They put that in place when they were way behind and trying to cut down on the number of people calling to ask them when their permit would be issued.

I know a couple of people who sent in their applications mid-December and received their permits early last week. That's a turnaround time of about three weeks, AND those three weeks included the holidays, so it looks to me that they're on top of things.
