How to Perform Connecticut Inmate Lookup

Connecticut’s Department of Corrections keeps an offender database online so you can quickly and easily search for someone in prison and view details about their crimes and their whereabouts. It’s helpful if you have their CT DOC Inmate Number, but you can search with just name or date of birth via Connecticut prison inmate search tool. From there you will see a list of inmates that match the criteria. You can click on any of the inmates to see more details regarding their inmate number, name, date of birth, admission date, location, status, bond amount, sentencing information and estimated parole or release date.

Creating Public Jail Records

All different law enforcement agencies start the process of creating jail records from the time of arrest, charges filed, court appearance and sentencing. From there the prison takes over, and any events that occur including visiting, checkups, altercations or other actions get recorded in the inmate's permanent file. Connecticut inmate search records are updated whenever changes occur, and staff at the Department of Corrections updates them daily. Each new offense committed while incarcerated gets added to the record. Much of what is contained with these files are public record.

What are Connecticut Jail Records?
