Indiana Inmate Finder Information
The Indiana Department of Correction website allows you to search for an Indiana prisoner by first and last name or by corrections number. Once you enter the Indiana prisoner’s name into the website, the database will show you any matching results. You will be able to see the inmate’s first and last name, inmate number, date of birth, race, gender, and corrections facility. This information will help you to be sure that you are looking up the correct person, especially if the inmate has a common name. Enter a name in the above form to search the Indiana inmate finder.
Once you find the Indiana inmate on the website, the database will show various information such as the status of the person’s sentence and whether they have been transferred from one jail to another prison. If the person has been relocated to an out of state prison, it will only say that the person is transferred out of state and will not necessarily inform you of which state or which prison the person is currently residing.
In some cases you might be able to learn the earliest possible release date of the inmate. Please note that the earliest possible release date does not mean that the person will be released on that date, but rather that is the first date when the person might become eligible for parole. Parole can be denied for many reasons, which means that the inmate might be detained for many years more than what is listed on the Indiana inmate finder.
For most Indiana prisoners, you will be able to use the database to find more information about the inmate’s crime and sentence. For example, if someone is convicted of a drug charge, the website will tell you specifically which drug crime was violated and the citation issued such as “dealing in cocaine” and the corresponding Indiana citation code. You will also be able to see the original sentencing time, which could tell you that the person was sentenced to seven years before the possibility of parole. If an inmate has been sentenced for more than one crime or has been in the Indiana corrections system previously, you will be able to find out that information as well.
Sometimes the information found in the Indiana inmate finder database is inaccurate, because Indiana does not always delete information once a prisoner’s sentence is released. It is important to scroll through the pages to find out if the person has been released. Do not assume that a person is currently serving time in an Indiana prison based solely on the fact that the name still appears in the database.
