Rhode Island Department of Corrections - Prisons & Inmate Search

Rhode Island maintains their own state prison system; six secure facilities on the Pastore Government Center Complex in Cranston, Rhode Island, which consist of every security level; maximum, medium, and minimum, as well as facilities that focus on sober living, and halfway houses that prepare inmates for life outside of prison.

The Rhode Island 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. Rhode Island abolished their death penalty in 1984. It should be noted that they didn't carry out any executions since 1852.
