Connecticut Department of Correction - Prisons & Inmate Search

Connecticut maintains their own state prison system, facilities which consists of every security level; maximum, medium, and minimum, as well as facilities that focus on sober living, and halfway houses that prepare inmates for life outside of prison.

The Connecticut Department of Correction is where offenders are sent that have been convicted of felony crimes of murder, rape, assault, serious thefts and drug related offenses. These are offenses of at least one year, and all the way up to life imprisonment. Connecticut no longer has a death row; it was abolished in 2012.

The Connecticut Judicial Branch oversees two facilities for juvenile offenders who have been convicted of serious crimes and sentenced to detention.

To search for an inmate or juvenile offender, or learn how to communicate with an inmate in the Connecticut Department of Correction or Youth Judicial Branch facilities, start by choosing from the list of facilities below.
