Are Wyoming Inmate Records Public Information?

Yes, inmate records in Wyoming are considered public records information. Any documented information kept by the Wyoming Department of Corrections (WDOC) about any person who is or has been committed to the department's supervision and custody may be made available upon public request unless disclosing that information could endanger the person's physical safety.

Wyoming Inmate Search

Wyoming inmate records are official documents detailing the personal and administrative information of individuals incarcerated in correctional and detention facilities in Wyoming. These records include the names, ages, genders, and mugshots of convicted offenders, as well as location, identification numbers, and sentencing information. Per the Wyoming Public Records Act, interested persons can access these records by conducting a Wyoming inmate search, except for confidential data.

Inmate records are considered public in the United States and, therefore, are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier means to search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:

  • The location of the sought-after record, including state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
  • The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.

How to Find Someone in Jail in Wyoming

To search for someone in a jail in Wyoming, interested persons can do a search using the Wyoming offender locator lookup tool. Either a WDOC inmate number OR the first two letters of the offender's last name must be entered as the minimum search criteria in order to access inmate information. Persons can also use this tool to search what jail a person is in if a person has been transferred to another jail, or find out why a person is in jail as a search will reveal all the offenses of the subject of a search. If the county where the person is detained is known, the County Sheriff can be contacted in person, via phone, or in writing to request inmate data.

How to Send Money to Inmates in Wyoming Prisons

Inmates incarcerated in state correctional facilities in Wyoming have accounts for receiving funds to buy commissary items and meet other needs. The WDOC allows friends and family of inmates to send money through:

  • Ace Cash Express
  • CashPayToday
  • Access Corrections

Ace Cash Express and CashPayToday are WDOC walk-in partners and provide payment kiosks at the state prison premises. To make sending money to inmates convenient for loved ones living far away from these facilities, the WDOC partners with Access Corrections to make it possible to add funds to inmates' accounts online. Access Secure Deposits accepts MasterCard and Visa debit and credit cards. Funds can also be sent through this payment processor by phone at (866) 345-1884.

Access Corrections handles payment processing for most county jails in the state. For additional information on how to fund inmate accounts for any Wyoming county jail, visit the jail website to get information on available options.

How to Get Approved to Visit an Inmate in Wyoming Prisons and Jails

The WDOC sets visitation rules for the facilities it runs. Anyone planning a visit to a Wyoming state prison must read the visitation policy and complete the visitation application packet containing the following:

  • Form 509: Special Visit Request
  • Form 530: Visitor's Consent Form
  • Form 531: Visitor Application
  • Form 532: Letter of Custodial Consent for Inmate Visiting
  • Form 533: Visiting Room Protocol for Inmates
  • Form 534: Visiting Rules
  • Form 535: Summary of Inmate Visiting Eligibility by Status

Except for inmates designated as intakes, all inmates are eligible to receive visits from up to 10 adults on their approved visitors' lists. Visitors under 18 years only need to appear on the list but are not counted as adults. Also, note that visitation schedules vary with the correctional facility.

Besides in-person visits, the WDOC facilitates visits through videoconferencing technology. Video visitation must be scheduled and used for regular visits or as a supplement to on-site contact visitation. Meanwhile, the visitation rules and schedules for county jails are independent of state prisons and vary from one jail to another. So, anyone planning a visit must check this information online or contact the jail administrator or the county's Sheriff's Office for visitation information.

How to Find a County Inmate Roster in Wyoming

County inmate rosters in Wyoming can be found on county sheriff websites or on county detention centers and jail webpages. Some rosters contain a list of present and past inmates in county jails. The county sheriff's office, where the target of the Wyoming inmate search is allegedly located, or the county jail where an inmate is housed can both be searched on a search engine by interested parties to uncover these rosters.

How to Perform a Wyoming Prison Inmate Search

The WDOC maintains the records of all Wyoming inmates and offenders who are currently in state prisons or on probation or parole. Interested members of the public may use the inmate lookup tool to conduct a free inmate search by name or inmate number. Offenders in this database are identified by their names as they appear in official court documents.

Furthermore, this Wyoming prison lookup tool provides information on incarcerated offenders and others supervised out of state. Supervised out-state offenders would be listed as "Interstate Compact". The location for inmates housed out of state will be listed as "In Custody".

Meanwhile, persons who intend to obtain Wyoming inmate records via mail can send a written public records request to the designated record custodian. The mail-in request must contain a letter describing the inmate of interest and the information sought, enclosed in a self-addressed stamped envelope and mailed to:

Steve Lindly
Deputy Director
Wyoming Department of Corrections
1934 Wyott Drive, Suite 100
Cheyenne, WY 82002

Alternatively, email steve.lindly@wyo.gov or contact the WDOC Public Information Office at (307) 777-5889. For further inquiries, contact WDOC at (307) 777-7208.

How to Perform a Wyoming Jail Inmate Search

Anyone that needs to perform an inmate search in Wyoming jails may query the county's local law enforcement department, i.e., the sheriff's office or police department. Each Wyoming county jail has an inmate locator tool either on the county's website or the sheriff's office's website. To find a person in jail, visit the website's jail section and use the inmate finder tools provided. Alternatively, individuals looking to know how to find a person in jail may contact the county jail or the sheriff's office directly during business hours.

Wyoming State Prisons and County Jails: Understanding the Difference

State prisons and county jails in Wyoming are operated by the state government. There are five state prisons and 23 county jails.

The largest state prison is the Wyoming State Penitentiary, which is located in Rawlins. It can house up to 1,500 inmates and has a staff of over 400 employees. The other two state prisons for men are the Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution, located in Torrington, and the Wyoming Honor Farm, located in Riverton. The only state prison for women is the Wyoming Women's Center, located in Lusk.

There are also several county jails in Wyoming that house inmates. The Laramie County Detention Facility is the largest, with a capacity of over 700 inmates. The Natrona County Detention Center and the Sweetwater County Detention Center are also large, with capacities of over 500 inmates each.

Inmates in Wyoming state prisons and county jails are typically serving sentences of one year or less. However, there are also a small number of inmates who are serving life sentences or death sentences.

How Do I Find Out an Inmate Release Date?

The fastest way to find out a Wyoming prison inmate's release date is to use the WDOC's inmate lookup tool. The public can use this tool to find inmates' descriptive information, incarceration details, and expected release dates. Where the release date is restricted for privacy or security reasons, only the inmate's immediate family members, crime victims, attorneys, and authorized criminal justice agency officials will have access to the exact release date.

Facilities Operated by the Wyoming Department of Corrections

The Wyoming Department of Corrections (WDOC) oversees the management of five institutions, including:

  • Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp & Wyoming Boot Camp
  • Wyoming Honor Farm
  • Wyoming Medium Correctional Institution
  • Wyoming State Penitentiary
  • Wyoming Women's Center

All five institutions under the WDOC are prison facilities. The Wyoming Department of Corrections provides a prison lookup tool on its website with a complete list of the addresses of these institutions. In addition, the WDOC also manages 25 field probation & parole offices located in every county in the state.

Aside from the five prisons managed by the WDOC, there are 75 other jails in Wyoming, including 25 county jails, 43 police jails, one regional jail, and one town jail. To find inmate records, means of sending money to inmates, and visitation rules for any of these jails, visit the police department or city/town website.
