Jail and Prison Search

It can be tricky finding friends or relatives that are incarcerated. So to help you find them, we’ve created the internet’s largest directory of prison facilities in the United States. Whether they’re in county jail, state prison or being held in the police station’s lock up, we can show you where they are. With direct access to the justice system’s directory of inmates, we can help you find juveniles as well as adult prisoners, whether they’re staying in a federal, state or county jail.

If you know the state or the type of facility your inmate is located, select it in the boxes below. Otherwise simply select any prison or jail then click on ‘Locate an Inmate’. This will take you to a search feature where you can look for inmates by name or ID number to discover their location and release date.
