Creating Public Jail Records

The state creates jail records for each inmate incarcerated in their prison system. Starting with the arrest record, every event that takes place in the inmate’s life is documented and placed in the file. These jail records are maintained in an online database so they can be shared across all law enforcement agencies within the state. Each facility that takes responsibility for the inmate takes over updating these files. The purpose of jail records is to keep all the information in one place to make it easily accessible when supervising the offender while in their care.
