How to Find Someone in Ellsworth Correctional Facility
When it comes to an inmate roster the Kansas Department of Corrections is the agency that is responsible for keeping records of all inmates who are in custody of an Kansas state prison.
Just like every other Department of Corrections, Kansas has its records available online for you to search through on your mobile device or computer.
You can search the records by the following information:
Inmate’s Full Name
County of Commitment
Next Parole Board Hearing Date
Inmate ID Number
Send a Mail/Package
Inmates can receive written letters, books, magazines, and newspapers while they are in the Ellsworth Correctional Facility.
When you send a letter, please refrain from having any of the following:
Usage of Crayons
If you plan on sending inmate books, magazines, and newspapers you will need to make sure they come from the publisher. You cannot send these items directly from your house. If you do, they will be returned to you.
Also, all books must be new and paperback. Hardcover books are not permitted.
All letters and packages should have your return address and be mailed out to the following address:
Inmate Name, ID Number
Ellsworth Correctional Facility
PO Box 107, Ellsworth, KS, 67439
Even though an inmate is in the Ellsworth Correctional Facility, you may not think they need money for certain things. Well, you are wrong. Inmates need money to purchase snacks, beverages, entertainment items, personal hygiene products from the commissary while also ensuring they have money in their phone account to make calls back home.
The Ellsworth Correctional Facility partners with JPay. JPay is a service that allows family and friends of inmates to put money on the inmate's books from going in person, online, or over the phone.
Ellsworth Correctional Facility allows inmates to make outgoing calls in one of two ways.
The first way is the inmate can call you collect. This is where the receiver will be responsible for any fees that occur with this call.
The second way is for the inmate to use the telephone service that the Ellsworth Correctional Facility partners with. This is where inmates will need money in their account to be able to make calls out.
However, all calls will be recorded and monitored and have a 15-minute limit.
If you would like to visit an inmate here at the Ellsworth Correctional Facility, you will need to make an appointment. There will be no walk-in visits permitted.
To schedule your visit at the Ellsworth Correctional Facility, you can call 785-472-5501. You can also request an appointment by email as well. Here are the steps on how you can do that.
Visiting days will be Wednesdays through Sundays. The visiting days will be broken into two sessions.
The morning session is between 8:30 am to 11:30 am. The last visitors processed during the morning session will be at 9:45 am.
The afternoon session is between 12 pm to 3 pm.
If you do not live in the general area of the Ellsworth Correctional Facility, you can do a no-contact visit, which is a video visitation.
The video visitation is through JPay. If you send inmates money, you will have already had an account through JPay, and you will use this account to video chat the inmate.
However, with video visitation, you will have to pay to see the inmate. This visitation method is not free to use.
