Kansas Department of Corrections - Prisons & Inmate Search

Kansas maintains their own state prison system, ten facilities which consist of every security level; maximum, medium, and minimum, as well as a work release center that prepares inmates for life outside of prison.

The Kansas Department of Corrections 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. While Kansas does not have a death row, they do have a death penalty for capital murders. Inmates sentenced to death are housed in El Dorado Correctional Facility (EDCF), along with other inmates who are separated from the general population because of their violent nature.

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

The Kansas Department of Corrections also oversees a secure detention facility for juvenile offenders who have been convicted of serious crimes and sentenced to detention, or are awaiting their court dates.
