Vermont Inmate Records

Structure of the Vermont Prison System

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 maintains 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 the supervision of 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 10 county jails.

How do I Send Money to an Inmate in Vermont?

How to Visit Inmates in Vermont Prisons and Jails

VT DOC provides facility visitation rules for state-run correctional centers. Each inmate is allowed a maximum of 3 visitors at a time unless otherwise approved by the Superintendent or designee in advance.

Approved visitors must be named on each inmate’s visitor list. Visitors must report to a correctional facility’s main entrance and record their names in the Visitor Log. They also must arrive no later than 30 minutes before the commencement of visitation. Bring along a valid government-issued photo identification when visiting an inmate in a Vermont prison.

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 in order 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 jails make sure to check the jail, Sheriff’s Office, or police department section of the county/city website for information about visitations.
