In this regard, how I find out if someone is in jail?
The best way to locate information on a federal prisoner for free is to go to the Bureau of Federal Prisons website at www.bop.gov. Then, go to the inmate locator tab. You can search by inmate number or name.
Also Know, can you call the jail to check on an inmate? No. Not really. If theres an emergency, death in the family, you can call the prison. Also, if you havent heard from the inmate, and are conerned about them, you can call the prison, ask who the inmates CO3 (counselor) is, and then ask the CO3 to do a welfare check on the inmate.
Herein, how do I find out if someone is in county jail?
If your county doesn't have an online inmate database, it may provide online court records. Check the county's Municipal Court portal and see if it provides court docket information. This data usually includes the jail or prison where the person is being held, or if the person has been released from custody.
Why can't I locate an inmate?
If you search through the state database and cannot find the inmate it is possible that the inmate is in either a Federal facility or they could be in a jail that is not included in the state databases. You will need to know the name the inmate was arrested, or committed to an institution under.
