About us


Understanding the Illinois correctional system can be confusing. If you’re trying to find, visit, or talk to someone who is in jail.

ILLINOIS PRISON TALK is a family support resource and information center for those who interact with the Illinois Department of Corrections. IPT members include inmate family/friends, prison reform activists, former offenders, inmate rights advocates, and others with an interest in the welfare of Illinois inmates. We encourage open discussion in the comments below each post, but please be tolerant of other people’s opinions. This site is copyrighted 2006-2021. All rights reserved.
