You will be given a field sobriety test, searched, stripped and searched again, placed into inmate clothing and begin your medical/psycological assessment.

Inmate Locator

AK DOC - Ketchikan Correctional Center is a facility in the Alaska Department of Corrections. The DOC publishes the names of their current inmates and identifies which of their locations the inmate is being held. Your search should start with the first DOC locator to see if your loved one is there. Begin with the first three letters of the offender's first and last name, it does not have to be spelled exactly.

The second box is the InmateAid Inmate Search. This database of inmates is user-generated content for the purpose of accessing and utilizing any or all of the InmateAid services.

Covid Visitation Information

Visitation remains suspended at all institutions in Alaska statewide. We understand how important family contact is to both the inmates and their loved ones, and we look forward to reopening visitation as soon as it is medically safe to do so. Due to the congregate nature of a correctional facility and the rise in cases throughout the state, it is important DOC remains vigilant in protecting the health and safety of those who live and work in our institutions. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding.

Since February 2, 2020 DOC has been screening every inmate booked into a DOC facility for COVID-19. On February 3, 2020 the DOC Infectious Disease Response Team held its first tabletop exercise for coronavirus response and has been meeting at least weekly since that time. A clinical care guide for DOC medical staff has been in place since 2/27 and a full departmental response plan was drafted March 4. On March 23 the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued its Interim Guidance on Management of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Correctional and Detention Facilities. The Department was pleased to see that the safeguards already put in place in Alaska met the standards issued by the CDC.
