About Us

Over the past 5 years more than 30,000 bookings occurred at Louisville Metro Department of Corrections.

People booked in to Metro Corrections will interact with a well-trained staff committed to excellence. Inmates housed in Metro Corrections facilities have many program opportunities such as Goodwill Soft Skills Academy; GED Classes; Substance Abuse Counseling; Domestic Violence Counseling; Mental Health Counseling; Religious Programs; Home Incarceration; and Day Reporting. Part of our mission is to assess an offender’s needs and provide services that assist that offender in the transition and reintegration back into the community. We have re-entry initiatives that are growing.

Louisville Metro Department of Corrections headquarters is located at 400 S. Sixth St., Louisville, KY 40202. Our lobby is open to the public for information 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

All inmates have certain rights established by Kentucky Administrative Regulations, statutes and case law that promote access to courts attorney, mail, visitation, telephone use, and internal grievance procedures. We recognize the interest of victims, volunteers, criminal justice providers, and all citizens of Louisville. Let us know what would improve you connections to Metro Corrections.
