Locating a prisoner

The best way to get in touch with a prisoner is to write to them.

Privacy and information acts prevent us from providing any information over the telephone.

Where to send the letter

Send the letter by post to:

The Prisoner's full name and their date of birth
C/O Department for Correctional Services
GPO Box 1747
Adelaide SA 5001

If the person is in prison we will check if there are intervention orders preventing contact. If not, we will forward your mail to them and they can contact you.

If the person is not in prison, we will return your mail to you.

Persons who have just been arrested will be in police custody and not in prison.
