Michigan Prisons and Jails
Michigan Prison and Jail Information Directory
If you have someone you know incarcerated in the Michigan Department of Corrections, either a prison or a jail, you will inevitably have some questions and concerns about visiting your inmate and how life proceeds after incarceration. The following list of prisons and jails in Michigan provides you with a page that answers many of the common questions, such as how do I write to my inmate, or send them money? What are the visiting hours, how you can fill out an application online, and what do you need to bring with you to visitation? Other useful things to know are how you can talk to your inmate on the phone, and how to search for the inmate in the online databases.
We work hard to keep our databases up to date and current, but visiting hours and many facilities change on rotating schedules. The visiting hours we have listed are for general planning purposes, that being said you should always contact the facility prior to your visit, just to ensure they have not changed. Also, if you notice the visiting hours of one of the institutions has changed please let us know in the comments section at the bottom of the page. Users can also share any of the experiences you have had with the Michigan Department of Correction.
