How to Visit an Inmate in the New York City Correction Department’s Jails:

Inmates are permitted to have up to three visitors at a time. Each correctional facility determines the maximum number of visitors allowed at one given time, based on conditions that are set forth in each facility, based on available space and number of visitors/inmates. In general, inmated are allowed to have three separate 1 hour visits per week. Children who are under the age of 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult (specified as someone 18 or older) and they must have proper identification. Visitors 16-17 years old are permitted to visit, but are not allowed to act as an adult escort for children under the age of 16 (unless the visitor and inmate being visited are the legal parents of that child)

Forms of Identification Required for Adult Visitors?

Every adult whom is visiting an inmate in the NYC Dept of Corrections facilities must present at least one form of identification (photo ID) which includes a valid (not expired) photograph and signature. The following are forms of ID that are acceptable for adult visitors:

State driver’s license with photograph and signature.
Valid passport
Alien photo ID cards
School ID
Employment ID card.
Food stamp card.
U.S. Armed Forces ID.
New York State DMV Non-Drivers License ID card.

The facilities may accept other forms of photo identification, at the sole discretion of the visit control officers.

NYS Correctional Facility Inmate Records:

Information about adult inmates is disclosable under the law.
Access to records of inmates of state correctional facilities in the State of New York archives which are more than 75 years old are disclosed without restriction.

If you would like to request records from the state archives for a particular inmate, you must provide the following:

Inmates full name.
The prison to which committed.
Date of conviction or admission to prison.
Without this information, the staff at the Archives usually will not be able to search for a record, because out of the vast number of records in the archives, few are indexed.

You may also request information about an inmate from the Department of Corrections Services facility, where an individual inmate was incarcerated, or from the central office:
