How to Find an Inmate

The South Dakota Department of Corrections has an offender locator that you can take advantage of. If you’ve done the prison search already, you can take advantage of the inmate search available through this website.

In order to search for an inmate, you need to know their first name, last name, or the DOC number.

Looking for an inmate can open a new portal to help you be able to communicate with an inmate a lot easier. After you’ve found the inmate, you can begin communicating via phone or email, and sending money.

How to Send Money to an Inmate

When it comes to sending money to an inmate, you should know that each inmate has their own bank account. Any money sent to this inmate, during the time they’re in prison, will be put in this account.

If an inmate earns money, while in prison, their money will also be put into an account. There are several types of accounts an inmate can have. These accounts can help them meet their obligations as far as child support, court fees, and other fees go.

Get a closer look at your options, for sending money to an inmate, right here. This resource is quite detailed and should answer a lot of your questions.

How to Send an Inmate Mail

Just as it was easy to lookup how to send an inmate money, it’s also easy to send them mail. Of course, there are rules and regulations you’ll need to follow.

Keep in mind that what you can and cannot send to an inmate is subject to change. Sending an inmate mail comes down to you not allowed to send:

How to Talk to an Inmate

Talking on the phone to an inmate is important. Inmates have access to a telephone system to talk to civilians. Inmates will need a pin number to be able to call and message.

Inmates can make long distance phone calls. A message system is in place, so that inmates know when someone has called them, so they can call them back.

If you don’t want an inmate to call you, you’ll need to call the state prison in which the person is calling from. From there, they’ll be able to stop the prisoner from calling you.
