About Inmate Search

Are inmate records open to the public?

Yes, in most cases inmate records are considered public records, and they are available for public access. The federal prison system and state prisons offer online inmate locator databases that can provide information on incarcerated individuals to the public.

Are there different kinds of Inmate Searches?

Yes. Inmate Searches can check federal, state, and local prisons and jails. Records of incarcerations at a federal prison will not appear in a state prison search, for example. However, nearly all prison systems provide online access to Inmate Search databases.

What is the Federal Bureau of Prisons?

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) operates the federal prison system. The BOP has an online inmate locator to perform Inmate Searches for federal inmates released after 1982. For inmates who were released prior to 1982, older records can be requested from the National Archives Records Administration.
