Management of prisons in Nigeria has long been a neglected area which has recently been incorporated in the 20-20 vision document under the e-governance. Currently, prisoner's records are maintained in a very rudimentary way in the form of manual files and registers. This method of data management often results in human error, delay to retrieve information etc. Thus, A Computerized Prison Information Management System was designed and implemented to manage prisoner's records for the Nigerian Prison Service Umuahia command. This project was done using basic Html for visible web contents, PHP for server scripting and MySQL database was used to store and manage the prisoner's records. Tools used to achieve this Project includes Dreamweaver CS5 html editor, CSS3 for styling, Java Script, PHP Wamp5 server and MySQL. The project was implemented successfully and the result obtained provides a single management system which integrates all the information about a prisoner in a single profile and can easily be accessed with improved the overall efficiency of prison management.
