District of Columbia Prisons and Jails

District of Columbia Prison and Jail Information Directory
Washington DC Prisons and Jails

Below is a list of all the jails and prisons in Washington DC. All of the facilities listed have useful information if you have a friend or family member who is incarcerated.  You can find the visiting hours, inmate mailing address, inmate phone procedures and more.  Best of all if you can't find the information you are looking for on our site just leave a question at the bottom of the facilities page and we will answer it.

While we strive for accuracy in all our information, we ask that prior to your visit at any of the correctional institutions you call and verify the visting hours.  The reason we ask you to verify the hours is because visiting schedules change often, and although we make every effort to keep our site up to date with the latest information calling the facility directly will ensure you visit at the correct time.  If you find that we have the wrong hours for any correctional facility please let us know by leaving a comment in the questions section at the bottom of the page, and we will make any corrections.
