There are various ways to contact an inmate.
JUST Connect is an online scheduling system used to make video and in-person appointments with inmates.
Inmates can contact you by telephone, but telephone calls cannot be made to inmates.
If you have a friend or relative in custody, you can contact them by letter. If you know the inmate's Master Index Number (MIN), that should be written on the front of the envelope under their name. The postal address for each correctional centre is available on the list of Correctional Centres in NSW. To confirm the inmate’s location (if unknown), Inmate Locations can be contacted from 8.30am to 4.30pm - Monday to Friday on (02) 8346 1000.
When you contact the inmate, ask if you can have their MIN.
