New Jersey Department of Corrections - Prisons & Inmate Search

New Jersey maintains their own state prison system; nine secure facilities which consist of every security level; maximum, medium, and minimum, as well as thirteen RCRP facilities that focus on sober living, and halfway houses that prepare inmates for life outside of prison.

The New Jersey 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. New Jersey abolished the death penalty in 2007.
