Maryland Department of Correction - Prisons & Inmate Search

Maryland maintains their own state prison system; five detention facilities which consist of every security level; maximum, medium, and minimum, as well as thirteen correctional facilities, which also consist of every security level.

The Maryland Division 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. Maryland's death penalty was abolished in 2013, thus there is no death row.
