Indiana Department of Correction - Prisons and Inmate Search

Indiana maintains their own state prison system, 18 facilities which consist 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 Indiana 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. Indiana also has a death row with eight murderers waiting to be executed.

Go here for full instructions on using the Indiana Department of Correction Inmate Search, as well as for the Bureau of Prisons inmates and ICE detainees. 

The Indiana Division of Youth Services oversees 19 detention centers, 16 which are run by the county where they are located, and 3 privately run centers, for juvenile offenders who have been convicted of serious crimes and sentenced to detention, or are awaiting their court dates. There are also two juvenile correctional facilities run by the Department of Correction.
