An inmate is anyone who is detained against their will in a jail, prison or a hospital for misconduct. Incarceration is for a specific period and it is seen as both a punishment and a rehabilitation for someone’s wrongdoings.

Depending on the severity of the crimes, each prison has different levels for each type of convict.

  • Minimum Security - is for low-risk offenders, usually white-collar criminals.
  • Low Security - is for non-violent inmates who don’t pose a general risk for escape.
  • Medium Security - houses more dangerous criminals that need extra supervision.
  • Maximum-Security - is for the most violent and dangerous criminals with a long history of offenses. Some even end up in solitary confinement.

Maybe you’re trying to locate a friend or a family member so you can send them money, or perhaps you’re a victim who is afraid their attacker might be released soon – whatever the reason, it’s never been easier to find an inmate. All you need is their name. If you have their incarceration number or their birth date, that’s even better. Save time and energy while keeping yourself up to date through our inmate lookup tool.
