How To Conduct A Free Prison Inmate Search

Free Prison Inmate Search

It’s easy to conduct a free prison inmate search.   Just visit our search page:

Free Prison Inmate Search

There you will find links to Department Of Corrections inmate search pages for all 50 states.   You will also find the Federal Board Of Prisons prison inmate search website and a free nationwide sexual offender search website, provided by Family Watchdog.

We are often asked what is the difference between a jail and a prison.  Inmates who are in jail are typically awaiting trial, are awaiting transportation to a prison or have received a sentence of less than a year (usually a misdemeanor sentence).  Inmates who are in prison have already been tried and convicted of a crime and received a sentence of more than a year (usually a felony sentence).

Jails are usually run by sheriffs, police departments or local government.  State Prisons are operated by the state where the inmate was convicted.

Finally, Federal Prisons are operated by the Federal Bureau Of Prisons and hold inmates who have been convicted of federal crimes.

We hope this post helps you conduct a successful free prison inmate search.  If you have any difficulty locating your suspected prison inmate or if you require background research on the inmate, please do not hesitate to call us toll free at 888-965-6696 for a FREE search consultation.
