How to Perform Florida Inmate Lookup

FL makes it very easy to search for and find an inmate if you want to look someone up in the penal system. With just a first or last name search you can see a list of offenders. You can narrow that search down by an offense, ID number, county or the location of the facility they are held within. When you perform a search, you will see a lot of information such as mug shot, name, race, gender, hair and eye color, height, weight, birth date, admittance date, facility info, aliases, identifying marks, release date, their criminal history, court history, and other details. You can also use Florida prison inmate search online to find someone in jail or prison.

Creating Public Jail Records

From the time a criminal is picked up by police and arrested, the state starts keeping jail records of the individual. Each agency after that, that handles the prisoner adds to the records. When the person has court dates, rulings, charges or sentencing, the record is updated. When they are moved to a new facility their information is updated until they have completed their rehabilitation and been released on parole. Every event that takes place during their prison life is documented and kept in their jail record.

What are Florida Jail Records?

Florida jail inmate search records contain a ton of information about an offender in the prison system. From the time of arrest, a file is opened and then added to as the inmate progressed through the system. The first document is the RAP sheet detailing their offenses. The Florida inmate search record will also include general information like their name, race, age, gender and a physical description including any identifying marks like scars or tattoos. All local and state agencies that come in contact with the prisoner will add to the files. Each inmate upon arrival is assigned an ID number, and that code follows them all the way through until parole.
