Missouri Department of Corrections - Prisons & Inmate Search

Missouri maintains their own state prison system; twenty facilities which consist of every security level; maximum, medium, and minimum, plus other facilities that focus on supervision, sober living, and halfway houses that prepare inmates for life outside of prison.

The Missouri 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. Missouri also has a death row with almost 15 murderers at any one time, waiting to be executed.
