  • Who is in this Prison

    Since Rhode Island Department of Corrections is a state correctional agency, the majority of inmates residing here are typically serving a sentence of 5 to 10 years, usually for drug or violence offenses.

    Inmate search links are hosted on external sites. If an inmate search link does not provide the inmate you are looking for, it could be that the inmate has been transferred to another jail or another prison system, entirely.

    Rhode Island Department of Corrections Visiting Hours

    Visiting hours for most state facilities occur on evenings and weekends, or weekends only. To visit an inmate in state prison, visitors typically need to be on the inmate's approved visitation list, which requires permission from the offender as well as approval from the facility. Be prepared to provide photo identification, vehicle registration, and any prior criminal convictions.

    State prisons generally have stricter inmate visitation procedures than county jails, and can include body and vehicle searches, surveillance and monitoring, and background checks. Lockdowns, disciplinary segregation or monthly visitation quotas will also deny visitation rights, so check the inmate visitation hours and procedures for Rhode Island Department of Corrections carefully on the prison website before visiting.
