**Please note that if you have an urgent matter, you should CALL the appropriate prison. Addresses and phone numbers are available here.
 

NOTE:  If you are contacting the DOC about an inmate-related matter, please be sure to include the inmate’s name, DOC # and current facility.  This will ensure we forward your email quickly to the appropriate individual for action/response.  Again, if this is an URGENT matter, please call the prison directly.

Finally, before actually submitting your form, please take a few minutes to look around our website.  In many cases we end up referring people to specific pages to obtain the information being sought.  Thank you.
