The Wyoming Department of Corrections (WDOC) oversees the management of five institutions. These institutions are:
- 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 complete list of the addresses of these institutions on its website. The WDOC also manages 25 Field Services (Probation & Parole) offices located in every county in the state. The contact addresses of these Field Service offices are also available on WDOC’s website.
Aside the five prisons managed by WDOC, there are 75 other jails in Wyoming including 25 county jails, 43 police jails, one regional jail, and one town jail. The rest are some form of adult or juvenile detentions. To find inmate records, means of sending money to inmate, and visitation rules for any of these jails, visit the police department's or city/town website.
How to send money to an inmate in Wyoming
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
- 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 partnered 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 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 the options available.
How to visit inmates in Wyoming prisons and jails
The WDOC sets visitation rules for the facilities it runs. Anyone planning a visit to a Wyoming state prison should download and read the visitation policy to guide their visit. The WDOC also provides the following forms for inmate visitation:
- 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
Read them to learn about the regulations guiding inmate visitations and complete and submit the consent form before scheduling a visitation. All inmates, except those inmates in intake status, are eligible to receive visits from persons on their approved visitors’ lists while confined in Wyoming Department of Corrections facilities. Inmates are permitted to have a maximum of 10 approved adult visitors. Intending visitors under 18 years only need to appear on the list but are not counted as adults.
The visiting period for each institution varies. Visitations happen on days and times set by a correctional facility for scheduled inmate visitations. The visitation schedule for each facility is available on the WDOC website.
The WDOC also permits inmates and their visitors to see and talk with each other through the use of videoconferencing technology. Video visitation must also be scheduled and may be used for regular visits or as a supplement to on-site contact visitation. Each institution offers privileged visit at least 3 days per week.
Visitation rules and schedules for county jails vary from one to another. Anyone planning a visit should check these information online or contact the jail or the county’s Sheriff’s Office for information about visitation.
How to locate inmates in Wyoming state prisons
The WDOC maintains the records of all Wyoming inmates and offenders who are currently in state prisons or on probation or parole. To find these inmates, the WDOC provides an offender locator. This search engine allows the public to query the database by inmate number or offender’s last name. Offenders in this database are identified by their names as they appear in official court documents. Using the offender locator, you can also search for inmates by age and gender.
This search tool provides information on incarcerated offenders and on offenders who are 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”.Wyoming Statute 16-4-201, Public Records Act authorizes the release of public information about inmates held in prisons and jails in the state. Requesters can obtain inmate records like mugshots and book information by sending written requests to:
Wyoming Department of Corrections
1934 Wyott Drive
Cheyenne, WY 82002
Alternatively, send an email to email@example.com or contact the WDOC Public Information Office at (307) 777-5889. For further inquiries, contact WDOC at (307) 777-7208.
