Washington State Department of Corrections Portal
A relatively new feature on the Washington State Department of Corrections Portal is an inmate search feature. One can look up an inmate by last name or by Department of Corrections Inmate Number. The name of the "offender", aka person, along with their inmate number and location are available. There is also a list of facilities with the contact information for each facility. Additionally, an interesting read is the "Life as an Offender" section that contains information regarding varied topics such as cell assignments, chemical dependency treatment, food, grievances, health service, recreation, religious programs, work assignments, and most importantly, release. We have listed this on our growing list of locater sites. Also, an interesting tidbit is that the Washington State Department of Corrections is recycling sneakers.
