About Jail and Inmate Records

Jail and inmate records provide information about current, and sometimes past, inmate status. Most states have a Department of Corrections that maintains inmate databases and these are often searchable statewide online by inmate name. Vinelink, a victim notification service, also provides online inmate information in many states. At the county level, jail records are usually maintained by the county sheriff. Here again, online searching is often possible and results may include inmate name, incarceration date, expected release date, type of offense and sometimes photos of the offender. Where online searching is not available, inmate information may be obtained by contacting the sheriff's office or the state Department of Corrections.
