California Dept. of Corrections

The website of the Corrections department has literally thousands of pages. Frankly, it took me a while to find the information above as to how to locate California inmates! I have read through their website and pulled out the most valuable information to save you the time. Do you want to see the most useful pages that will give you the information most families and friends are looking for? Click here: California Department of Corrections Page.

California Correctional Facilities

Once you find who you are looking for, you will need to know contact information for that specific facility. Here is a link to all of the adult facilities in California. You will see a map of California. Click on the icon where the prison is located and you will go to a page with a mailing address and the physical address of the prison as well as phone numbers to the facility. You can also use the drop-down list at the top of the page to find alphabetical listings of the adult facilities. Click here: California Correctional Facilities.
