However, over the next 6 years, these problems have been fixed, which now has made the Minimum Security a more secure and safer place for inmates and staff members.

When it comes to an inmate roster the Rhode Island Department of Corrections is the agency that is responsible for keeping records of all inmates who are in custody of an Rhode Island state prison.

Just like every other Department of Corrections, Rhode Island 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

  • Residential County

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.

Sending Money

Even though an inmate is in the Minimum Security, 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 Minimum Security 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.

Phone Calls

Minimum Security 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 Minimum Security 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 Minimum Security, you will need to make an appointment. There will be no walk-in visits permitted.

To schedule your visit at the Minimum Security, you can call 401-462-1234. You can also request an appointment by email as well. Here are the steps on how you can do that.
