Get in Touch With an Inmate at Green Bay Correctional Institution

If you know your friend or loved one is incarcerated at Green Bay Correctional Institution, how can you find them and make contact? Also called GBCI, this maximum-security prison—originally an old factory—was founded in 1898 and operated on 54 acres in Allouez, Wisconsin. It houses roughly a thousand men.

Maintaining relationships outside of prison is beneficial to inmates, reducing their risk of repeating past crimes. It's also beneficial to loved ones, as they can maintain and even strengthen healthy relationships with their incarcerated friends and family. That's why the prison system makes it a priority to help interact with inmates through letters, phone and video calls, and in-person visitation.

But before you can reach out to a loved one inside Green Bay Correctional Institution, you have to know some basic details about the prisoner. We'll show you how to search for an inmate the traditional way and how to connect and communicate with an inmate the easy way—with DoNotPay.

How to Confirm an Inmate Is Incarcerated at GBCI With the Offender Locator Form

You can find out where an inmate is incarcerated and find their Department of Corrections ID number by filling out the Offender Locator form. Here's how:

  1. Navigate to the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (DOC) Offender Locator website.
  2. Read the description, legal notices, and privacy notices.
  3. Click "I Agree."
  4. Fill out as much information as you can, including the inmate's:
  • Legal name
  • Possible aliases, if any
  • Age range or birth year
  • Race
  • Gender
  • Last known address (before incarceration)
  1. In the very lower right-hand corner (it can be hard to find if you don't know where to look), click "Search."

You'll be given as much information as possible about the inmate, including their DOC number and their place of incarceration.
