Additional Jail Finder Information

Jail facilities differ from state and prison facilities as they are mostly detention centers for those awaiting incarceration by the courts. Many times people are only locked up for a few days until they’re released by the courts or are out on bail until a court proceeding can take place. Others are sentenced to short sentences at jail facilites for DUIs. DWIs, Domestic Violence, Drug Charges, Shoplifting and Disturbing the Peace. Many of these infractions and misdemeanors are not severe enough for the detainee to be placed in a prison. If you’re looking for a state prison inmate then visit our Free State Prison Finder. See the American Jail Association for more information on local jail facilities and jail statistics
