Kentucky Inmate Finder Information
The Kentucky inmate finder is available through the Kentucky Department of Corrections website. You can search for inmates in Kentucky by their legal first and last name or by their aliases. You can also conduct an advanced search by Department of Corrections number, offender type, supervision status, location, age, crime or conviction date, race, gender, or location. When you conduct your search, you can check a box to be able to view any available photographs of the person. If there is a mugshot available in the system, you will be able to see the photograph and know for sure whether you recognize the individual. The more information you can enter into the system, the easier it will be to narrow down your search.
The Kentucky corrections department allows you to search for people who are currently incarcerated in the state as well as previous inmates who have served their time. There is also a section to search for escaped inmates. You can search specifically for death row inmates as well. If you are searching for someone who has been arrested but is not currently serving time in a Kentucky prison, you can do an advanced search to find someone who is awaiting sentencing or going through a pre-trial diversion program for drug or alcohol abuse. You can also search for formerly incarcerated people who are out on probation or parole, former convicts who are listed in the sex offender database, and people who are otherwise under community supervision.
If you are looking for someone who was recently arrested or convicted in Kentucky, you might have trouble finding them in the database. According to the Kentucky Department of Corrections website, it sometimes takes more than 120 days for new offender data to be finalized and entered into the system. According to the department of corrections, victims of crimes can expect to be notified directly by the corrections department regarding any changes in custody of a convicted offender, such as if the inmate is relocated to another facility or has been released. If you are a Kentucky crime victim who wants to be notified when the offender’s parole hearing is coming up, you can call 1-800-511-1670. Because of privacy laws concerning minors under the age of 18, you will not be able to locate minor inmates in the online database.
