Inmate Search

The Delaware Department of Correction website hosts an inmate search database through which an inmate can be located. You can search for an inmate by entering either their offender ID number or their full last name and first name (or the first two letters of the first name.)

Sending a Mail

At Sussex Correctional Institution and other facilities at security level 2 or higher, all letters will be photocopied, and these copies will be delivered to inmates. A maximum of three 8 ½ x 11-inch pages (front and back) of each mailing will be delivered. Any additional items, such as cash, checks, postage stamps, or prepaid envelopes will be discarded.

All mail should be addressed as such:

Inmate's full name
Inmate's state identification number (7 digits)
Name of Facility or Institution
Address and Zip Code

Sending Money

The Delaware Department of Correction directs family and friends to deposit funds into an inmate’s account through Jpay. Cash, checks, and money orders should not be mailed to the facility. Funds can be deposited in person at the facility as well. Be aware that a percentage of all funds transferred to an inmate will go to paying legal fees if they exist.

Phone Calls

Inmates at Sussex Correctional Institution are allowed to make calls through the system. Calls can only be made if there is money in the inmate’s account. Family and friends should create an account to deposit the funds, as well as receive calls from the inmate. An inmate must put those they wish to call on an approved caller list, so make sure that your inmate has the phone numbers of all they wish to keep in touch with.

Be aware that calls will be monitored by Sussex Correctional Institution staff.

Visiting Rules

Visitations at Sussex Correctional Institution are allowed on Saturdays, Sundays and state holidays. Visitors should contact the administration at 302-856-5280 for more details on visitation schedules for each offender.
