New Hampshire State Departament Of Corrections Inmate Search

Updated on: October 24, 2022

New Hampshire has the third lowest violent crime rate and the lowest property crime in the United States. The crime rate is 15 per 1000 people. The low crime rates can be attributed to the low demographic change and population growth. Besides, there are also low unemployment rates and high-income levels. A well-organized and reformed prison and jail system have played a significant role in the low crimes experienced in the state.  

New Hampshire Prison Inmate Roster

You can do an inmate search on New Hampshire DOC. The department offers a prison inmate roster through an online web service. You can use the inmate's first or last name to get their information. The details include the inmate's maximum sentence, offense date, age, the correctional facility, and others. 

Each county jail has a correctional department you can reach by phone, mail, or visit to search if the inmate is held there. You can also get information from their official website if you have their name, age, and Identification number.  

New Hampshire State's Prison and Jail System 

 The state has one federal prison and one federal camp, managed by the Federal Bureau of Prisons' Northeast Regional Office. Most of the inmates are housed in larger state prisons.  County jails have fewer inmates and staff. Prisoners in state prisons are classified into one of the following levels: 

  • Minimum level: For inmates posing less risk to the public 
  • Medium level  
  • Maximum  
  • Supermax: For inmates posing the greatest risk to public safety  

The prisoners are also housed depending on their security levels. Minimum security prisoners are housed in dormitories because they pose the lowest safety risks. Medium-security prisoners are housed either in cells or dormitories, while the maximum-security ones are housed in cells with tight security.  

Inmates in County jails are also housed in different buildings depending on security levels. Those posing less risk are held in general population areas. The high-risk ones are held in segregated places from the general population.  

After sentencing, offenders are held in thirty-day quarantine custody. Here, they are interviewed and tested by the prison staff. They are oriented to prison rules and go through other programs, after which they are taken to suitable housing units.  

There are various programs aimed at helping inmates in state prisons change their behavior, gain more life skills, and also help them become responsible citizens when released. Many of the programs are voluntary unless ordered by the court. The inmates are also supposed to work unless advised not to by a physician.  

Contacting an Inmate  

You can contact an inmate by sending a mail maximum of ten pages. The mail should have the inmate's full name, identification number, facility name, and postal address. You can also send emails through an approved vendor since inmates cannot access the internet. The email is printed and delivered to the inmate as a letter.   

Inmates cannot receive a call but are allowed to make the calls. To receive a call from an inmate, you should create an account with Global Tel Link, the approved provider by the New Hampshire Department of Corrections.  

Sending Money  

You can send money to an inmate by mail in the form of money orders or personal checks. Address the mail using the identification number provided to the inmate. Your name should also be on the envelope, money order, or check. Personal checks are held for thirty days for clearance before the money is deposited into your inmate's account. 

Another option is using electronic transfers via ConnectNetwork. You can also send money by visiting the kiosks in the correctional facility approved to receive the funds.  

Visiting an Inmate  

Inmates in Hampshire prisons are privileged to enjoy a maximum of two visits every week. However, social workers, attorneys, clergies, or government officials can visit the inmate several times. You can only visit an inmate if you have sent an application form and are approved.  

Visits to correctional facilities are allowed on Saturdays and Sundays. There is no limit on the number of immediate family members who can visit an inmate in prison.  

Before visiting, you should check the New Hampshire DOC website for the visit schedule for the different inmate categories. This is necessary because inmates are classified depending on their status within the facilities, each having a distinct visiting schedule.  

You should submit a valid photo ID when accessing the facility. Minors need to provide their birth certificate.
