    Our church, Wilkesboro Baptist, hosts an angel tree party every December. We send cards with pictures of the inmates’ children out aftrwards. This year several came back with “RTS no OPUS #”. I’d like to resend cards but don’t know the OPUS #. I do have inmates’ ID #s and gov’t ID #s. Would one of those be the OPUS #? If not, is there a way for me to get those numbers?
    Thank you.

      I know it’s now March, but you can check the inmate locator on the NC DPS site. search the name of the people, then it’ll give you their OPUS#
