Inmate Search

First and foremost, the Wichita Work Release Facility is a state facility. What does it being a state facility have to do with searching for an inmate?

That means the Wichita Work Release Facility is under the operation of the Kansas Department of Corrections. The Kansas Department of Corrections will be the agency that by law has to keep an updated database of ALL inmates they have in custody.

You can locate this database on the Kansas Department of Corrections website. This database can be searched by the inmate’s number or their name.

Sending a Mail/Care Package

Mail time is the favorite time of the day for these inmates in the Wichita Work Release Facility. Inmates can receive letters and photographs from their loved ones.

Inmates can also get books, newspapers, and magazines through the mail as well. These items will be required to be new and be sent to the Wichita Work Release Facility from the bookstore or the publisher. All books need to be paperback. The Wichita Work Release Facility will not accept hardcover books.

All mail should be made out to the inmate and the inmate’s number on it as well. Keep in mind that the inmate may receive the mail late as well because it goes through the mailroom where a correctional officer will review the letter or items prior to allowing the inmate to have it.
