Nevada Department of Correction - Prisons & Inmate Search

Nevada maintains their own state prison system; 22 facilities which consist of every security level; maximum, medium, and minimum, as well as conservation camps and transitional housing that prepare inmates for life outside of prison.

The Nevada 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. Nevada also has a death row with approximately 65 murderers at any one time, waiting to be executed.
