Correctional facility is a term used by Process Servers in Connecticut that refers to a jail, prison, or other place of incarceration by government officials. They serve to confine and rehabilitate inmates in Connecticut as they do in all other states.

Do Process Servers say there is a difference between a correctional facility and a prison?

Actually, in Connecticut, correctional facility’s and prison’s are basically the same. Correction facilities usually include prisons and jails while prisons are considered a subpart of the correctional system. Whether an inmate is incarcerated in a Connecticut corrections institution or a prison, they are subject to service of process, continuing their involvement within the justice court system. In must be noted, Private Process Servers in Connecticut who are tasked to serve process upon an inmate are delivering legal documents concerning civil matters only.

Correctional Institutions and Prisons in Connecticut are similar to most facilities in all states throughout the United States. State Prisons in Connecticut are part of a larger criminal justice system which includes police, prosecution and the courts.

Inmate defendants incarcerated in a Connecticut correction facilities are subject to the practices of the institution rules and regulations. Process Servers who are tasked with the job of serving inmates in a Connecticut facility with service of process can only perform their duties and services with the guidance and approval of the facility managers and in many situations, the approval of the warden.

Estimates and data reveal, there are more than 1,400,000 inmates within the entire United States state prison system

State prisons in Connecticut are generally classified as minimum, medium and high security. There are approximately 1700 state prisons in the United States. Inmates in a correction facility in Connecticut regardless of classification are subject to private Process Servers performing service of process and are no different than any other person incarcerated Connecticut or not.

Federal correctional Institutions located in Connecticut are the home of inmates who have been convicted of a wide range of charges. Estimates and records indicate all federal prisons are the home to over 220,000 inmates.

Many people familiar with the federal corrections system in Connecticut refer to federal prisons as a penitentiary. Penitentiary is synonymous with prison and or jail, these names actually mean the same. The number of sentenced inmates entering federal prisons facilities in Connecticut each day is far less than the number of people who are delivered to it’s jails.

Private Process Server’s throughout Connecticut deliver legal documents and civil lawsuits to federal inmate’s. Actually, federal prisons grant Process Servers access to inmates by appointment only and are easier to coordinate service of process services than Connecticut state run prisons.
