Types of Correctional Facilities in Wyoming
Those who are serving a sentence in Wyoming state prisons are overseen by the Wyoming Department of Corrections (WDOC). With their centralized inmate database, you can easily search for an inmate throughout the state.
However, those who are serving a sentence in county jails, police jails, or city jails, will not be located through the Wyoming Department of Corrections. You will have to go through their respective sites.
Below, you will find information on Wyoming Department of Corrections, how to do an inmate search, and learn how to stay in contact with a loved one.
Wyoming DOC Mission
The Wyoming Department of Corrections is full of professionals looking out for the safety of everyone. Their core services and mission include:
- Public Safety: The WDOC contributes to safer communities through reasonable, safe, secure, and humane management of inmates.
- Rehabilitation: Using research-based practices they provide offenders opportunities to become law-abiding
- Case Management: They target areas for treatment and intervention through a structured assessment process.
- Correctional standards: All staff adhere to standards within the facility.
- Good stewardship: The WDOC also partners with victims, communities, public agencies, and private agencies to better meet their mission.
How to Do an Inmate Search
If you are trying to find an inmate, you can easily do an inmate search from the WDOC homepage. Under quick links (red box), you will want to click on offender locator.
You will either need to know the inmates WDOC number or their first and last name. The more information you know, the better the search.
Once you find the inmate you are looking for, click on their name to find their information. Write down their WDOC number, the facility they are located in, and their status.
How to Stay in Contact
Research shows that inmates who have a great support system outside of prison will have a better chance at being rehabilitated. The WDOC offers several ways for you to stay in contact with a loved one.
Visitation: Visitation is allowed at each facility. However, each facility has their own information in regards to visitation. You can find this on the visitation page.
Phone calls: Inmates are allowed to make outgoing collect calls to friends and family.
Mail: Using the information from the inmate search, you can send mail to an inmate. Include the WDOC number, offenders name, and the address of the facility on all pieces of mail.
How to Send Money
Inmates need money put on their books for various reasons. You will need to know the information from your inmate search to send money. To send an offender money, you can do so in the following ways:
- By Phone: Call 1-8-66-245-1884 to put money on an inmate’s account.
- At a Walk-in location: At certain facilities, you can use Cash Pay Today or https://www.acecashexpress.com/Ace Cash Express machines to deposit money.
- Online: Wyoming uses Access Corrections to allow family and friends to deposit money using a credit card or debit card online.
It is important to follow all rules, procedures, and guidelines when contacting or sending money to an inmate. This is for the safety of everyone involved including workers, visitors, and inmates.
