Welcome to the Onondaga County Department of Correction, located in Jamesville, New York, a suburb of Syracuse. We are a direct supervision facility with a capacity of 516 inmates and employing approximately 210 employees.  This web site offers information on our organization and mission, opportunities afforded to inmates incarcerated at our facility, and what our inmates provide to benefit taxpayers and the general public during their stay.

The Department of Correction is pleased to participate in the New York Sheriff's Victim Hotline, "Victim Information and Notification Everyday," or VINE program.  This system provides will tell you if an offender is in jail or prison in New York State and will give you other important custody information.  The hotline will also let you leave a telephone number where you want to be notified when that offender is released, transfers, or escapes.  Click here for more information on VINE and the many benefits it can offer. 

A good place to start browsing our site is the on line tour. This tour shows the inner workings of our facility including a typical housing unit and inmate room.  We hope this tour betters your understanding of what a modern correctional facility looks like.

Another interesting stop is the inmate work program. This branch of the site illustrates the many and varied work programs performed by our inmates which is a benefit to county taxpayers while helping to develop vocational skills and responsibility for preparation back to the community.
