The Search For Incarcerated Inmates in the United States

The search for incarcerated inmates can be as simple as a name search if you know where to start. If you don’t know where to start this can be daunting because of the sheer number of people that are incarcerated ( more than 2 million people in the United States ).  If you type “search for incarcerated inmates” into the search engine you’ll probably get a lot of government website results for different states and the federal government but they’re not necessarily connected … meaning that if you don’t select the correct prison or jail facility you won’t find the incarcerated inmate you’re looking for. Below are some tips to help you in your search for incarcerated inmates. If you don’t know the inmates identification number then you will need to know their full name and state where they were incarcerated.

Search For Incarcerated Inmates Tips:
1). Know the inmates full name
2). Know the state in which the inmate was incarcerated
3). Know the type of facility the inmate is held in ( ie. State prison, federal prison, county jail )
