Vermont Inmate Records
Vermont inmate records contain personal and administrative information about individuals incarcerated in prisons and jails in Vermont. These records include inmates’ biographical data as well as booking, incarceration, and release information. Most of these records are publicly available based on the Vermont Public Records Act and thus, accessible unless sealed or expunged.
Inmate records are considered public in the United States and therefore are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:
- The location of the sought-after record, including state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
- The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.
Facilities Operated by the Vermont Department of Corrections
The Vermont Department of Corrections (VT DOC) is a division of the Vermont Agency of Human Services. It oversees the operations of seven state correctional facilities and maintenance contracts with out-of-state facilities to house inmates. The Vermont Department of Corrections also operates 11 field offices across the state. These community-based field offices are called Probation and Parole (P&P) offices. They are responsible for supervising individuals released on furlough, sentenced to days on a work crew, or sentenced to community or home detention. Besides these state detention and supervised release facilities, Vermont also has 41 police jails and ten county jails.
How to Send Money Inmates in Vermont Prisons
The VT DOC provides family and friends two ways of sending money to inmates in state prisons. The two options are online deposits on the Access Corrections website and Deposit Coupon. Visitors can obtain a Deposit Coupon from inmates or pick one in any Vermont state prison lobby. You can also print and use a blank deposit coupon provided on the VT DOC website for this purpose.
Only money orders and bank checks are accepted using Deposit Coupon (no cash or personal check). Money orders and bank checks are to be made payable to VT DOC FBO (Inmate Name). Note that there is a $500 per day limit on funds deposited in inmate accounts. VT DOC provides a sample deposit coupon as a guide. Senders must ensure to write Inmate ID # in the memo field of the money order or bank checks you send.
Family and friends can also deposit money in an inmate's phone account online at Offender Connect for prepaid phone accounts or Vermont Package for debit phone accounts. When making commissary purchases, use the Access Correction website.
How to Visit Inmates in Vermont Prisons
The VT DOC provides facility visitation rules for state-run correctional centers. Each inmate can receive three visitors unless the Superintendent approves more in advance. For starters, an individual must be an approved visitor, arrive 30 minutes before the actual visitation time, and record their names on the visitor log. The prison staff will require valid government-issued photo identification before allowing access to the facility.
Prison officials may require additional identification and ask for visitors’ birth certificates. Minors under the age of 16 are required to present their birth certificates to visit. Children are allowed to visit only under the supervision of parents or legal guardians.
Visitation times and rules for Vermont county and city jails vary. When planning a visit to any of the prisons, check the jail, Sheriff’s Office, or police department section of the county/city website for information about visitations. You might also need to use the

The Difference between Vermont State Prisons and County Jail
Vermont's state prisons and county jails are responsible for the incarceration of Vermont residents who have been convicted of crimes. These facilities are operated by the Vermont Department of Corrections (DOC) and the Vermont Sheriffs' Association, respectively.
The DOC operates eight state prisons in Vermont: the Northeast Regional Correctional Facility, the Northern State Correctional Facility, the Southern State Correctional Facility, the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility, the Marble Valley Regional Correctional Facility, the St. Johnsbury Correctional Facility, and the Windham County Jail. The DOC also operates a Pre-Release Center in Williston and a Probation and Parole Office in Burlington.
The Vermont Sheriffs' Association operates seven county jails in Vermont: the Addison County Jail, the Bennington County Jail, the Caledonia County Jail, the Essex County Jail, the Franklin County Jail, the Orleans County Jail, and the Rutland County Jail.
Inmates in Vermont state prisons and county jails are typically housed in cells or dormitories. Meals are provided three times daily, and inmates have access to laundry facilities and recreation areas. Each facility has its own rules and regulations regarding inmate behavior and visitation.
