Wisconsin Inmate Records

Wisconsin inmate records contain official information of present and former inmates held in state prisons, county jails, and correctional facilities in Wisconsin. The records may provide general information such as the inmate's identification number, full name, birth date, and other biodata. Per the Wisconsin Open Records Law, these publicly available records may also include sentencing information, such as the type and class of offense and the location of the facility holding the inmate.

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 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 Send Money to an Inmate in Wisconsin Prison and Jail

Inmates in Wisconsin prisons receive funds through the following methods:

  • Access Corrections Secure Deposit: this has a daily limit of $2,900. Parties can send funds through phone, mail, the Access Corrections website, or at a walk-in location.
  • US Postal Service: A Wisconsin DOC money order/check deposit slip is printed and completed and is available at the facilities. The sender must write the inmate DOC number on the check or money order as well as the deposit slip. Writing must be legible and be in black or blue ink. Cashier's checks, personal checks, and money orders must be made payable to 'Access Secure Deposits.' Mail the money order or check to:

Secure Deposits-Wisconsin DOC
P.O.Box 12486
St. Louis, MO 63132

  • Walk-in: this service attracts a service fee when used. Cashpay can be visited to find locations that accept walk-in payments. To enroll, call (844) 340-2274 or visit the website.
  • Phones or the internet: The use of a Visa or MasterCard is accepted. It attracts a service charge. Inquiries can be made by calling (866) 345-1884.

Meanwhile, county jails like Wood County Jail accept drop-offs at the facility when sending funds to inmates under their custody. Senders can use the kiosk in the front lobby of the jail. Parties can also use credit cards to deposit money into inmates' accounts by visiting the inmate canteen website. Note that convenience fees apply, and the system will deduct a percentage for debts that an inmate incurred on receipt of the funds.

How to Visit an Inmate in Wisconsin Prison and Jail

Adult prisons in Wisconsin generally have visitation rules and procedures that visitors are expected to follow during in-person visitations, including:

  • Submit a completed DOC 21AA Visitor Questionnaire for visitation privileges.
  • Unless the minor is legally married to the inmate, an adult on the approved list must accompany a minor during visitation.
  • The inmate gets notified when a visitor has been approved and added to their list.
  • An inmate is allowed 12 visitors. This does not include approved minors until they turn 18.
  • Present a valid, government-issued photo ID during visitations.
  • The facility will deny visitors entry if they do not clear through metal detectors after three attempts.
  • Visitors under no-contact visiting restrictions may incur additional restrictions like the use of audio-visual equipment or limits placed on the length of visits and number of visitors.

Wisconsin County Jails have specific procedures that guide visitation. For example, all inmate visitation at Polk County jail is done via video visitation. The Polk County jail requires proposed visitors to open an online account and schedule visits online where visitor accounts will be approved or denied in approximately 48 hours. Parties can set up an online account by following a step-by-step guide. Visits can be scheduled when approval has been declared.

Besides in-person visitations, visitors can also opt for remote video visitations for a small fee or on-site video visitations for free. Either way, the visitor must create an account and schedule a visit. Certain rules that govern visitation at this facility include:

  • The age limit to visit without a parent is 18
  • An adult who is an approved visitor of the inmate must accompany underage children
  • Visitors must conform to the dress code or will not be permitted to visit
  • Any visitors caught with contraband will be prosecuted.

How to Perform a Wisconsin Prison Inmate Search

The Wisconsin DOC has a prison lookup tool that interested persons may use to perform a free inmate search by name or the inmate's identification number if known. This tool is used to search for convicted persons incarcerated in state prisons. It does not bring up information regarding inmates serving time in county or city jails. Interested persons may use the following parameters to use the prison lookup tool:

  • Age range
  • Race
  • First and last name
  • DOC number
  • Birth year
  • Address
  • Gender
  • Alias
  • Address
  • Status of the offender

Parties should note that there are some inmates whose information are not available on the site, including:

  • Offenders of interest to the Department of Justice
  • Inmates in county jail
  • Juveniles

For additional information, contact:

Department of Corrections
P.O. Box 7925
Madison, WI 53707-7925

How to Perform a Wisconsin County Jail Inmate Search

In Wisconsin, county jails hold inmates who the circuit court has sentenced for a low-level crime. The sentence can range from a few days up to a year. County jails are under the authority of the local sheriff or police department. So, inmate lookups in these facilities are available on the local law enforcement official website — web pages known as jail rosters or inmate lists. Besides online search, interested persons may also visit the local law enforcement in person during business hours to find a person in jail.

How Do I Find Out an Inmate Release Date?

Inmate release date is available on an inmate's records. Interested persons may obtain this information online or by contacting the jail administrator unless a court or the record custodian makes the information private for safety reasons. In such cases, only the inmate's immediate family members, crime victims, attorneys, and authorized criminal justice officials, will have access to the inmate's exact release date.
