About Massachusetts State

Massachusetts is where both baseball and volleyball were invented. It was also the first state to recognize gay marriage. Its capital city, Boston, is home of the famous Harvard University, as well as 45 other colleges and universities. It is the most populous state in New England. Several surveys have rated it the best state in the United States to live. The idea for the 13 colonies originated in Massachusetts, and Shay’s Rebellion in 1786 was the spark of the Constitutional Convention.

Massachusetts DOC Inmate Search

Step 1: On the Massachusetts Department of Corrections website, you’ll find the inmate search link on the page that explains how to find an inmate in a Massachusetts prison.

Step 2: This will bring you to a Vinelink page, which is a national victim notification network. Here you will find a drop-down menu. Go to the dropdown menu and select “Massachusetts” to get your search started out. If you don’t select the state you will not be able to perform your search correctly.

Step 3: Now you can either enter the offender ID number if you have it, or, more likely, the first and last name of the inmate you are searching for. If you’re not sure of the spelling of the first name, you can just use an initial.

You can also perform a search of the Massachusetts sex offenders registry. When you first get there you will have to read a warning. Then you will have to use the CAPTCHA to verify that you are a human being and not a robot.
