Connecticut State Records

Connecticut Inmate Records

Connecticut inmate records encompass all information regarding detainees in Connecticut correctional facilities, including state-operated detention centers, jails, and penal institutions. These records contain the personal information of all incarcerated persons such as their full names and aliases, race, gender, date of birth, nationality/ethnicity as well as unique identifiers and associations. Inmate records also include details of each detainee's criminal information which includes their primary charges, arrest/booking details, current sentence, bail/bond conditions, and prospective court or release dates. As per state laws, all or some of this information can be accessed by interested members of the public.

Connecticut State Prison System

All jails and state prisons are unified under the Connecticut Department of Corrections, which is charged with managing the operations of all correctional facilities within its jurisdiction. There are 18 state prisons and one federal prison in Connecticut but no county jails or detention centers. All facilities maintained by the department are operated according to the national model, and facility and inmate-related information are typically disseminated by corrections staff.

How Do I Locate Inmates in Connecticut State Jails

All public information relating to incarcerated persons in the state of Connecticut can be found using the Inmate Search Tool designed by the state Department of Correction. To view an inmate's location, offender information searches may be conducted on the tool using the first/last name, date of birth and CT Doc inmate number of the detainee. In addition to inmate locations, the index also features the controlling offense of each detainee, bond amounts, date of sentence and sentence length, latest admission date and estimated release date. Inmate-specific information may also be obtained by querying the corrections staff in the facility were the inmate of interest is resident.

How Do I Visit Inmates In Connecticut Prisons and Jails

Correctional facilities in Connecticut each have visitors guidelines and schedules which may be unique to their location. These may be found on the Visiting Information Page of the Department of Correction website. However, the below stated general visiting guidelines apply to most Connecticut state jails;

Subsequent to locating an inmate, intending visitors are advised to confirm that they are listed on the detainee's approved visiting list before visiting the facility. The prospective visitor will be provided with a visiting application form by the counselor, and visitors are typically required to undergo a verbal and physical screening process to prove their eligibility. Approved persons will be contacted by the inmate within 3 or 4 weeks of submitting the application. Prior to the approval of the application, two (2) adult visitors from the inmate's immediate family are permitted a courtesy visit.

Eligible visitors are required to schedule their visits with the corrections staff beforehand. While visiting schedules vary from facility to facility, visits are generally not held on the day of state-observed holidays. Visitor attires must be reasonably modest as per administrative directives, and cell phones and other electronic devices are not permitted in any of the facilities.

Visiting Connecticut Inmates With Non-adults

All visitors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by adults who are named on the inmate's approved list. The child or their legal guardians must provide any document containing their name as a means of identification -- i.e. birth certificates, social security card, report card, etc. One of these documents must be presented on each visit.

Attorneys/Professional Visits

Inmate attorneys are generally required to study the Attorney-Client Visiting Guidelines of the state of Connecticut. Pre-scheduling of professional visits are advised but not required, and all visitors in this category, but not on the visitor's list will be required to provide a professional credential or valid driver's license upon arriving at the facility.

The Professional Visit Page of the CSDC website features the contact information of all DOC facilities in the state and the staff responsible for scheduling these attorneys, privilege and professional visits.

Contacting Incarcerated Persons In Connecticut

All Connecticut state inmates may be contacted via U.S mail or penpal websites. However, while inmates do not receive incoming calls, detainees may place outgoing calls to persons included on their approved calling list.

Mail correspondence must include the address of the facility where the inmate is incarcerated as well as the inmate's full name and DOC number. Padded mailing envelopes may result in slow delivery of the mail, and inmates may respond to persons other than those excluded according to the Administrative Directive on Inmate Communication.

How Do I Send Money to an Inmate in Connecticut

All interested persons (including those exempted from the inmate's visitors list) may send money to detainees electronically or by money order. Electronic deposits may be made using any of the approved payment partners -- JPAY, Touch Pay or Western Union.

Western Union payments require the inmate's last name, 8-digit inmate number and should be made payable to Connecticut DOC (Code City: CTDOC). Inmate numbers less than 8 digits may be prefixed with two additional zeros. For money order deposits, the payer must download and fill legibly the Inmate Trust Fund Remitter Form. This should be sent along with the money order to:

Inmate Trust Fund
P.O. Box 290800
Wethersfield, CT 06129-0800

All orders must include the inmate's full name and correctional identification number and no correspondence to the inmate may be enclosed.
