The New Hampshire Department of Corrections 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

Inmatescan 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:

Inmates can be sent packages quarterly 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 lockbox, which has no service fee and is the best way to send a money order, cashiers check or personal check.
