How To Find Out If Someone Is In Jail

  1. Typically, the first step to find out if someone is in jail is to call the local sheriff’s office and inquiring about the person. If the person is awaiting trial, he or she would be kept temporarily in a sheriff’s or local jail before transferring to the assigned county, state, or federal prison based on the sentence.
  2. The second step is to search the state Department of Corrections website where possible. Each state maintains its own records and, when public prisoner records are available, a search through can yield significant information about the inmate. We’ve provided direct links of all DOC facilities in the US with detailed instructions on how to use them.
  3. Finally, a search through the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) database can provide information on federal inmates, if this is where they’re located.
