  1. IDOC
  2. Facilities & Visitation



Phone numbers and addresses of each facility facility are available within the page of the specific facility you choose to locate. E-mail is neither available to staff nor the inmates of a facility. If you have questions about policies at a facility, it is strongly recommended you call the facility directly.
Also, it is recommended to click on the facility name to check for special visiting limitations due to lockdown, if any.

Security Designations

Security designations ensure consistency and standardization of operations at IDOC's facilities. To effectively monitor operations from reception to discharge, security designations offer a step-down program for inmates showing good behavior. The security designations are designed to ensure continuity of services and flexibility to appropriately address inmate populations from reception through parole. The new levels encompass all three districts statewide.
