What are Inmate Records?

Inmate Search Tool -

As soon as someone is taken into custody, law enforcement agencies create a file that keeps track of every step along with the booking, sentencing, and incarceration process. Inmate records are constantly sourced from the main five types of US correctional facilities: federal prisons, state prisons, private prisons, city and county jails.

Based on the aggressiveness and the public safety risk
they pose, inmates are ranked as:

  • Minimum-Security Criminals (low-risk offenders).
  • Low Security (for non-violent convicts).
  • Medium Security (more dangerous people who need extra supervision).
  • Maximum Security (for the most violent ones, with a long criminal past).

Although the term "prisoner"refers to a person who is confined against their will, according to the law, it can only be attributed to prosecuted felons and those incarcerated for misdemeanors. "Inmate" is used for criminals who are serving time in prisons.

Incarcerations by the Numbers

  • Over 2.2 million people currently locked in the nation’s jails and prisons
  • A 500% increase over the last forty years
  • 1 in 9 inmates serving life sentences and 33% of lifers’ sentences are without parole

How many people are locked up in the United States?

Regardless of the committed crime, digitalized nationwide inmate records help people track anyone who has ever been through the US disciplinary system. Locating an inmate or a parolee is as simple as typing their name, case number, or uploading their photo into our lookup tool. Our data scanning feature returns any relevant public records and offender information from the full name, current location, detailed physical description, to time of arrest, court dates, hearings, sentencing, and rulings.
