According to the state's Office of Legislative Research
, more prisoners come from Hartford than any where else in the state, with New Haven coming in second.
The OLR recently released a backgrounder on the hometowns of prison inmates. The top five cities (with the number of inmates who call it home in parentheses) are: Hartford (2,245), New Haven (1,841), Bridgeport (1,771), Waterbury (1,471), and New Britain (754).
The towns from which the fewest prisoners come are (perhaps not surprisingly) New Canaan, Sherman and Union. No current inmates hail from those towns.
The report also notes that "802 inmates reported an out-of-state address as their residence and DOC reported 16 inmates with an unknown or unrecorded address."
