Inmate Search

The Fayette County Detention Center hosts an online inmate locator database as a service to those wishing to locate an inmate. It should not be relied upon for totally accurate information.

Inmates can be searched for using their inmate number, which yields the most accurate results. Alternatively, inmates can be located by their last name. For narrower results, enter the inmate’s first and/or middle name. For all names, partial spellings will yield results.

Sending a Mail

Inmates can be sent mail by anyone, although all incoming letters will be opened and inspected for contraband. Contraband can include anything besides up to ten plain pieces of paper and up to ten 8x10 inch photos. Send mail to:

An inmate’s number can be found using the inmate locator or by calling the Public Information Officer of the inmate’s institution at 859-425-2700.

Inmates can be sent packages through third-party vendors. There are a variety of different companies to choose from, some specializing in items by category such as shoes, vitamins or music. Others offer more general options such as packaged foods, clothing, etc.

Sending Money

There are several ways to send money to an inmate. One can use a lock box, which has no service fee and is the best way to send a money order, cashiers check or personal check. Another option is an electronic funds transfer (EFT), which is a paid service but also is the fastest way to send money (1-3 days).

Finally, one can mail checks or money orders but it could take up to one month for the funds to reach the inmate in Fayette County Detention Center. Write your name/address and the inmate’s name and inmate number on the face of the check.

Phone Calls

While no one can call an inmate on the telephone, inmates can make outgoing phone calls. The Fayette County Detention Center utilizes the GTL system for phone calls, which allows family and friends to create prepaid accounts from which funds for the call will be taken for any received call. Inmates must have money to place a call. Calls are monitored.

Visiting Rules

Fully prepare yourself before visiting by reading the visitation guidelines. These give all the information needed, anywhere from how to behave and dress to what you can bring.
