How to Locate Inmates in the Indiana Department of Corrections

If you're not sure your friend or loved one is at Plainfield Correctional Facility, you can look them up through the IDOC's offender search page, located here:

https://www.in.gov/apps/indcorrection/ofs/ofs

You'll need to know the inmate's full legal name, and if you know it, the inmate's prison ID number. If you only have the prisoner's name, this is how you will get their ID so that you can get in touch with them. The search will tell you where the inmate is incarcerated and any other important details such as their unit name and security level.

How to Send Mail to Plainfield Correctional Facility Inmates

It's extremely important that you understand what mail contents are allowed and what aren't. If you don't know the rules, the letters you send could be disposed of by the prison staff.

Unfortunately, the Indiana Department of Corrections makes it all but impossible to determine on your own what mail is contraband and what is legal. There are no instructions on the IDOC website, only a vague reference to an ordinance outlining what inmates are allowed to have in their possession. You can find that document here:
