How to Perform Idaho Inmate Lookup

ID has an offender search database on their website. You can find someone with just first and last names. You will then see a list of inmates, and you can click on each one to see more detail. Although you can see the name, address and phone number of the facility where they are held, you won’t see much more information about them, only their crimes and the sentence they are serving. In Idaho inmate search records you will see their name, their ID number, gender, and age but that is about it. You can use an Idaho prison inmate search online to search for inmates and get much more information including their entire criminal history and mug shots.

Creating Public Jail Records

ID jail records begin when someone is arrested in the state. Local law enforcement gets the ball rolling by filling out a RAP sheet on the person and holding them in jail. After that, they stay there until a hearing, or they get moved to another facility. With every event that takes place, more paperwork is filled out and recorded. Every detail is kept in their file and an online database so each new agency can find them and update the jail records as the inmate progressed through the system.

What are Idaho Jail Records?

Idaho jail inmate search records are all the forms and documents that are filled out and kept in a database when someone is in the ID prison system. The paperwork trail follows them throughout their stay. From the time they are arrested until they are released from prison, everything that happens to them is documented, and the file is updated. Most states keep all this information online and searchable so each agency can find inmates easily and keep them updated. Every visit from the inmate's lawyer, family or friends is recorded, every move to a new facility, any altercations they encounter or medical issues are all entered their permanent jail record.
