What are Inmate Records?

Maryland inmate records contain official data on offenders who have been detained, booked or incarcerated in correctional inmate facilities within the state. It may include records from county jails, state prisons or other penal institutions. Inmate records contain general information such as the inmate’s full name, date of birth, race, and sex. Inmate records may also include inmate-specific data such as the inmate’s booking number, the inmate’s current location, and the inmate’s status. Inmate records fall under the umbrella of public records and therefore can be accessed by the public, in compliance with Maryland's Public Information Act (PIA).

Maryland’s Prison System

Headquartered in Towson, the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services is tasked with the oversight of 24 state prisons and pre-release centers. It’s divided into multiple divisions, including the Division of Correction and the Division of Parole and Probation. It also has oversight over two dozen correctional facilities as well as four detention centers. Each of these facilities operates with varying rules and regulations that the public must follow to contact, mail, or visit inmates.

Can Anyone Visit an Inmate?

Almost anyone can visit an inmate, as long as they’re included in the inmate’s official visiting list. However, visitors younger than 18 years will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Most of the facilities in Maryland require that inmates first fill out an application prior to their visit. Depending on the detention center, inmates may be allowed up to 15 visitors on a list. In addition, Inmates will be required to present a valid government-issued ID, such as a valid birth certificate, passport or military ID.

Visitors are not allowed to wear see-through clothing, mini skirts (or anything above the kneecap), tubes, tank tops or clothing that may expose the wearer’s midriff, back, or side.
