Hamilton County residents who are in local, state, or federal custody can be located using the resources below.  First look up the person to find out what facility he or she is in then look up the institutional address.  If you are writing or visiting someone in custody, make sure you’re familiar with the facility’s policies.  No matter your good intentions, not adhering to these policies will almost certainly result in your letter being returned or your visit being denied.  There is little if any discretion when it comes to these policies because of the inherent risk to security in contact with the public.
