How to Perform Alaska Inmate Lookup
AK keeps all inmate records online and searchable according to the Freedom of Information Act so you can easily look someone up who is in prison in Alaska. You can use the Alaskan-authorized database and search for inmates in AK with just the person’s prison ID or name. You also have the option of using Alaska prison Inmate search tool for a complete record of their criminal activities. With both methods, using just someone’s name you can see where they are being held and other pertinent information.
Creating Public Jail Records
Alaska’s Chief Classification Officer of the Department of Corrections maintains the database of jail records for each inmate incarcerated in Alaska’s prison system. Although Alaska does not have their own searchable database, they provide the information to VineLink service so you can find someone jailed in Alaska. The records you can access will provide basic information such as name, aliases, age, race, gender, date of incarceration, their ID number, and where they are currently detained. The Alaska jail inmate search will also show what the agency reported the information.
What are Alaska Jail Records?
Alaskan jail records are the details that the state keeps on every inmate who is admitted into the system. These records are kept from the point of arrest and everything that happens after. The records may include mug shots, personal details and description of the criminal, all arrests, charges, and sentencing. You may also see their age, date of incarceration, race, and gender. The inmate records that are collected and maintained by the state cover all 19 boroughs.
