Inmate Search

The Cheshire Correctional Institution operates under the Connecticut Department of Corrections, and you can find offenders using this search. However, it should be noted that the website doesn’t seem to guarantee the accuracy of the information.

You also should be able to find out whether an individual is on probation or parole, as well. You can search by first name, last name, race, inmate ID and/or State ID. There is a free mobile app available for maximum convenience, as well.

Sending a Mail

All outgoing mail is processed in a mailroom before being delivered to inmates and mail is delivered five times a week during normal business hours. Legal mail at Cheshire Correctional Institution may be opened and inspected in front of an inmate but will not be read.

Photographs are allowed, as long as they do not contain nudity. In addition, the photographs must be 4” x 6”. Inmates are never allowed to send cash, checks, or any items to any other inmate.
