Connecticut State Seal

The origin of the Connecticut prison system started with the Old Newgate Prison in East Granby Connecticut. Originally a copper mine, which opened in 1705 it did not turn a profit so the colonists started using the mining tunnels as a form of prison. It was used to house inmates during the Revolutionary War and in 1790 became the state prison. Old Newgate served as Connecticut's prison for men until 1827 when the new state prison was opened in Wethersfield. Trying to locate an inmate back then was almost impossible due to the many prisoners of war.

The Connecticut Department of Correction shall protect the public, protect staff and provide safe, secure and humane supervision of offenders with opportunities that support successful community reintegration.

It's important to understand that that a person who is incarcerated in Connecticut doesn't necessarily mean they have been convicted of a crime! Connecticut's correctional system also holds defendants who are awaiting trial.
