New Inmate Locator is now available for confirming active Chester County inmates.
The Inmate Locator contains information about each inmate currently under the jurisdiction of the Chester County Prison. The Inmate Locator is a useful tool for confirming information about inmates currently housed in the facility: the inmate's ID Number, case number and what they are being held for. ( H - Hearing, C - Court, S - Sentence). The Inmate Locator does not contain information on inmates not currently residing in the Chester County Prison.

Visitation Alert

With the passing of the most recent storm, the prison will resume Inmate Visitation beginning this afternoon at 12:30 p.m. It is recommended that you call to verify the housing of the inmate you are attempting to visit.

Unfortunately, there maybe times when due to health concerns of a “pandemic nature” we will be forced to alter and or cancel our inmate visitation schedule.  More Information...

Inmate Financial Responsibility Change

The Chester County Prison Board on 9/25/2012 amended the current I.F.R. (Inmate Financial Responsibility) Program to include the following:


Effective 01/01/2013 all inmates who are committed on or after this date will be charged a $50.00 Booking/Processing Fee.  This fee will apply and be assessed to an inmate’s account upon initial commitment.  An initial commitment includes, but is not limited to, an inmate’s entry to the Prison on criminal charges (Felony, Misdemeanor and/or Summary Offenses), violation of the terms and conditions of Probation/Parole, violation of Bail rules and regulations and whenever the inmate is issued an inmate ID number.  There will be no additional Booking/Processing Fee assessed for an inmate after initial commitment with an existing ID number.  However, if an inmate is officially discharged from the Prison and is subsequently recommitted thereby reactivating his or her inmate ID number, a new Booking/Processing Fee will be assessed.

Should an inmate not have sufficient funds on his/her account at the time of committment to cover the entire fee, a negative account balance will be created. Should he/she have a negative account balance due to the unpaid current Booking/Processing fee, and/or a previous unpaid Booking/Processing fee of record, he/she will not be eligible to participate in Commissary and Block Phone access until the current and any prior unpaid fees are paid in full. All financial transactions will be made through the Inmate Accounts Department.
